It's still wrong.  Should be /usr/lib/sendmail -- no "e" in /usr

Also, I think you need to do something special with your output
since you're doing it from CGI (as opposed to straight Perl) -- I am
not a CGI whiz, so I'm not sure, but I think you have to put some type
of "Content: text/plain" in there before you start any other output,
even though you're not outputting to a web page...

Hope this helps!
