If this is a smrsh problem like Morbus supooses, then you might want to try 
the hack that is suggested by the MajorDomo FAQ, since MajorDomo is run in 
a similar fashion.

2.11 - I get "sh: wrapper not available for sendmail programs"

You're on a system which uses smrsh. (sendmail restricted shell). You have 
to configure smrsh to allow it to execute the wrapper. Normally this is 
done by creating a symlink in /var/adm/sm.bin (in some it's /etc/smrsh) to 
Majordomo's wrapper program.

Another option may be that its not launching the script correctly. Is the 
script chmod'd correctly? Does it have the shebang? maybe try calling perl 
directly with the script as a parameter.
