Sorry, scrub that. I think you are either missing the "\" from the end 
of the previous line, or else the "\" is not the last character on the 
previous line. There must be no spaces after it, it must be the last 
character. It is trying to run "-C/etc/mail/sendmail-in.cf" as a 
command, which of course is invalid.
