The default value appears to be:
sendmail-path=/usr/lib/sendmail -bs -odb -oem
It just happens that the ZMailer's 'sendmail' ``complains'' about
ignored options, and it looks like the complaint goes to stdin of
the PINE -- which expects to get the SMTP greeting:
220 hostname ZMailer ....
Once I recognized that, fix was easy..
( The complaint goes to the stderr, but PINE apparently binds child
process stdout, and stderr together :-( )
