Perhaps, though is that necessary?  It seems that mhmail was
intended to be lean.  The man page recommends using comp and
send for interactive use.  For scripts, a different mts.conf
could be used by setting MHMTSCONF, e.g.,

  $ cat /tmp/mts.conf 
  servers: localhost

  $ MHMTSCONF=/tmp/mts.conf mhmail levine \
    -from address@hidden -subject test -body hello

Note that mhmail uses post, not send.  And it doesn't read
the user's profile or aliases.  And I think that -from is
now required when sending, so we'll have to update that in
the man page.
