Hi Lars,

I know this is a bit silly but have you done an ls -l 
/usr/local/bin/sudo and ensured the binary really has execute 
permission? It sounds to me like the permissions have not been set 
correctly during the package installation. I would have thought the 
mount would have told you if it was noexec.
