You are editing /etc/sudoers.

The visudo command should have the path already compiled into it.  You
should be able to simply run visudo and edit the file without having
to go to a particular place and specifying the filename directly.

  sudo visudo

Looks to me like your sudo command is compiled to use
/private/etc/sudoers and not /etc/sudoers.  Don't you agree?
