Speaking of which, here is my annual forlorn cry for volunteers to step up and 
provide build slaves to help ensure the on-going portability of the nmh code 
base.  If you can spin up a (dedicated or virtual) machine for the cause, we 
can always use your help.

Note that you do want to run this on an isolated system, if only because you 
are trusting us to run arbitrary commands on the machine.  But the resource 
footprint we need is quite small.  All we require is a C99-compliant compiler, 
git, python, and the basic set of GNU auto* tools.  Most of the current 
buildbots run inside 256 MB single-CPU virtual machines with just enough disk 
space to hold the OS and the nmh build tree.

We currently build on:

  FreeBSD 9.2   amd64
  FreeBSD 10.0  amd64
  Mac OS 1.9.2  amd64
  OpenBSD 5.4   amd64
  Solaris 11    amd64
  Ubuntu 13.10  amd64

It would be nice to build on more than just 64-bit AMD/Intel.  I really don't 
like that we do not have any build/regression happening on a big-endian 
architecture.  (My SPARC build machines went away a couple of years ago.)  
Adding some 32-bit architectures back into the mix would also be good.

If you can help out, send me a note and I will fill you in on the not-so-gory
