It's in Fedora at least (I maintain it there).  I don't ever expect nmh to
be in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as they only have a finite amount of
engineering power, and there is certainly not enough demand for nmh.

The easiest way to get nmh running on RHEL4 is going to be this:

Download this:
(it's the Fedora 9 nmh source rpm)

rpmbuild --rebuild nmh-1.2-20070116cvs.4.fc9.src.rpm

At the very end you should see something like this:
Wrote: /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/nmh-1.2-20070116cvs.4.i386.rpm

Just install that rpm.
