this came up recently, so i happen to know the answer:

from the mhbuild man page:
    "If the text has lines longer than the value of -maxunencoded
    (which defaults to 78) then the text is encoded using the
    quoted-printable encoding."

add this to .mh_profile to avoid it:

    mhbuild: -maxunencoded 200  (or whatever you think is the right
                                    limit for encoding to happen)
