As far as I know, sendmail has always resided in the /usr/lib directory
on SunOS/Solaris.  But paths.el, which I think is dumped into the emacs
executable, looks for /usr/sbin/sendmail before /usr/lib/sendmail when
setting sendmail-program.  Perhaps your original Solaris installation
had been tweaked when Emacs was built.

In any case: (setq sendmail-program "/usr/lib/sendmail")

You might want to put that in site-start.el instead of ~/.emacs, if there
are other Emacs users on your system.
