Exactly which "security issues"? References? CERT Advisory 
numbers?
I guess the "user of another distro" has read this article from 
year 2003: 
http://www.samag.com/documents/s=8228/sam0306a/0306a.htm
and imagines no development has been done in the last 2.5 years

Correct. Acording to CERT: " There have been a number of 
vulnerabilities identified over the years in sendmail(8). To the 
best of our knowledge, the current version of sendmail addresses 
those known vulnerabilities."
