Red Hat and a few other Distributions (that piggy back off RH maybe?)
use /etc/smrsh as their default.
The default if you install smrsh (sendmail) from source is
/usr/adm/sm.bin. That's totally whacked.
Your point is a good one though, and I've run into that problem more
than once. I've updated the 3.14 FAQ to indicate the alternate location
of the smrsh directory. Thanks!
