When the watchdog is shutting down the server and it tries to send an e-mail, it complains:

/usr/lib/sendmail does not exist or is not executable (errno = 2)

That's because I use postfix, which has sendmail in /usr/sbin. It looks like configure or could be patched to fix the problem, assuming that /usr/sbin is a more desirable default than /usr/lib.

Additional info:
watchdog 5.9-2
