[Nmh-workers] configuring message submission port

i've just build/installed latest git.  now that post defaults to port
587, i'm wondering how to configure the port number back to 25.  i've
found the -port option to send and post, but no mention of a means
to configure this in mts.conf.  

the error, when attempting to send a message, is:

    post: problem initializing server; [BHST] no servers available
    send: message not delivered to anyone

which isn't particularly indicative that it's actually the default
port that's changed.

if adding a port specifier (does it need to be per-server?) to
mts.conf is too hard, perhaps the "mts" parameter should gain a new
"submission" alternative, which would always imply port 587.  "smtp"
would continue to imply port 25.

(i've configured my local postfix listen on 587, so things are
working, but it seems there's a documentation (or functionality) piece
missing in MH.)
