You're right, I thought he was talking only about the Mailutils
recommendation, but I misread.

Eli wanted to avoid silently changing the default, which is why I
worked on creating confusing warnings :-)

I'm not wedded to the form, but I think configure should output
*something* to warn people about the change in behaviour.  Or we go
full radical and disable building our own mailutils on non MS-Windows,
thus simplifying this mess greatly (we'd have to warn a bit more
loudly if GNU Mailutils aren't installed, though)
