Solaris is why I want to see all hardwired paths to commands eradicated from 
the code base. I want nmh to pay attention to the '/usr/xpg4/bin' at the front 
of my $PATH.  I have no problem at all with making PATH=/usr/xpg4/bin:$PATH a 
requirement for building nmh on Solaris.

And for the record, most of us die hard cranks are editing with acme these days
