[Nmh-workers] nmh on Mac OS X (10.2.7)

        I'm having trouble getting nmh to run on Mac OS X. (10.2.7).
When I try to run 'inc', I get the following error message:

[silverstreak:local/src/nmh-1.1RC2] sherk% inc
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/mail/sherk

I get the same behavior with nmh-1.0.4 and with nmh-1.1RC2. I suspect
that this has to do with the dot locking, but I can't seem to find
the problem. Has anyone else seen this? 

ls -lag /private/var
drwxrwxr-x   3 root  mail    102 Oct  5 22:36 mail

ls -lag /private/var/mail
total 8
drwxrwxr-x   3 root   mail   102 Oct  5 22:36 .
drwxr-xr-x  19 root   wheel  646 Sep 29 16:00 ..
-rw-------   1 sherk  mail   574 Oct  5 22:36 sherk

The binaries seem to set right...
ls -lag /sw/bin/inc [nmh-1.0.4]
-rwxr-sr-x  1 root  mail   206612 Sep 26 22:21 inc 

ls -l /usr/local/inc [nmh-1.1RC2]
-rwxr-sr-x  1 root  mail  442204 Oct  7 14:37 inc

Any ideas? Thanks...
