I got something much more "interesting"; this time on x86_64.

execve("/usr/bin/newaliases", ["/usr/bin/newaliases"], [/* 32 vars */]) = 0
brk(0)                                  = 0x55555589f000
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) @ 0 (0) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

Yes, that is the whole strace output in that particular case.  All attempts
to start  /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail, regardless of a name used and arguments,
are ending up in the same way.

Reverting glibc-2.5.90-2 to glibc-2.5-3 makes sendmail immediately to run.

On i686, su (from coreutils-5.97-13) segfaults on me, under strace-4.5.14-3 it
tells me the (correct) password is wrong.
