This is happening with Darcs 2.12.5 and current Darcs HEAD.

When no MTA (Mail Transport Agent) is installed, `darcs send` fails
right after computing the list of patches to be sent, even if it is used
without the --mail flag (ie, when you do not need an MTA at all):

$ darcs send 
Creating patch to "http://darcs.net"...
Patch bundle will  be sent to: patches@darcs.net
No working sendmail instance on your machine!

The default behavior of darcs send has long ago been changed to just
create a patch bundle.
