Hi Jeff,

That's basically what I used to build 1.5 on my Kepler machine which is
now running CentOS with no nmh in their repository, not even 1.3 :-(. I
got permission from IT to compile it, fortunately. My full command was
this, since I didn't have permission in the spool directory (for
locking) nor /usr/local:

    ./configure --enable-lockdir=$HOME/var/mail --with-cyrus-sasl --with-tls 
--prefix $HOME/lib/nmh

$HOME/var/mail is my MH Path, by the way. This seems to have served me

David's build_mh script looks neat.
