There's the error. You need to let smrsh run rt-mailgate. Make a
symlink to rt-mailgate in /etc/smrsh (or wherever that directory is on
your system).

Jesse, could you add

  Since the standard sendmail configuration will call rt-mailgate
  with smrsh, the sendmail restricted shell, you must tell smrsh
  that it is allowed to run it. To do so, make a symlink in
  /etc/smrsh to rt-mailgate:

     # ln -s /path/to/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate /etc/smrsh/rt-mailgate

to the sendmail section of the docs, following the newaliases command?

(Also, I noticed that qmail Method 2 is still there. I'd encourage you
to remove it; I can't think of any reason you'd have to add an rt user
just to configure qmail unless you already had a sufficiently complex
virtualhosts setup, in which case the recipe in Method 2 probably
wouldn't work out of the box anyhow. If you don't remove it, then the
pipelines MUST call preline like the ones in the example above it.)
