sendmail not found during build

Description of problem:
Until Fedora 25 there was no need to set a sendmail path.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 3.24.3
Release : 1.fc26
Configure a mail account with "Sending Email" Server Type "Sendmail".
Update from Fedora 25 to 26.
Send an email.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above.
Evolution will not send the mail but throws an SENDMAIL_PATH-NOTFOUND error.
Mail should be delivered to sendmail (postfix in my case).
I was able to send mails agaion by choosing "custom binary, instead of sendmail" and put /usr/bin/sendmail in the field.
Sorry, /usr/sbin/sendmail is the path.
Thanks for a bug report. The path is auto-detected when building
evolution-data-server, thus when the sendmail is not installed it's also not found and there was no default. I changed it upstream with the below change, but I will also add BuildRequires to sendmail to the .spec file, thus it'll be found.
