Unrelated, but this reminds me of another nit I have with --prefix.

Currently we install the etc stuff into ${prefix}/etc, which spams 
/usr/local/etc pretty hard when faced with --prefix=/usr/local.  Personally, 
I'm not a fan of the /usr/local/nmh default prefix, and would prefer to see it 
changed to /usr/local, with the configdir stuff pushed down a level to 
$prefix/etc/nmh. (And libexec stuff in $prefix/libexec/nmh, etc)  I think most 
people expect things to install this way, and just show up in their $PATH 
(which, presumably, already has /usr/local/bin in place).
