Maybe these will help:

Compare your old sendmail.mc file on FC3 to the new one on FC5.
Make sure the FC5 machine has the SMTP port open on the firewall
(system-config-securitylevel can help you if you are not an iptables guru)
Make sure that the FC5 machine has the right Perl modules -- possibly
things like Mail::Mailer and Net::SMTP come to mind as Perl modules you
might have installed on the FC3 machine but that didn't get installed by
default on FC5. In the commit-email.pl script, you'll see lines that
start with "use" if the script is trying to use external Perl modules.
Check the mail logs just after you try to run the Perl script and see if
there are any errors that may tell you about problems.
