mail: Sending...failed with exit value 71

Funny, sending mail with emacs was set up and working fine some months
ago (just to try it out-- to check it out), but it isn't anymore.  

It's 99.999% certain that there's something not configured in the emacs
MUA.  My regular email tool, pine, has been and still is working just
fine forever.  With ngrep sniffing port 25, I can see that nothing
getting outside.  The logs say

sendmail[4986]: hB725mJ04986: SYSERR(ken): Can't create transcript file 
./xfhB725mJ04986: Permission denied

In emacs' *Messages* buffer I'm seeing

Sending...failed with exit value 71

How do I find out what 71 is/means?

Better yet, what needs to be changed?
