Or, you can wait for me to release coreutils 6.9-1, where 'ln -sf' will take 
care of the broken sendmail.exe link at the same time as creating the working 
plain sendmail link.

But FWIW, I agree with the sentiment that your postinstall script should NOT be 
touching sendmail; you should be saving that for cron-config.
