I have come across this bug in Debian's mailutils, and Jeff isn't able
to take care of it right now.

Anyway, any invocation of mail results in the following:

 | $ mail broonie                                                               
 | sendmail="sendmail:/usr/sbin/sendmail"                                       
 | sendmail="sendmail:/usr/sbin/sendmail"                                       
 | sendmail="sendmail:/usr/sbin/sendmail"                                       
 | source requires an argument                                                  

This breaks debconf and many cron scripts, for example, so it's a quite
uncool bug. I haven't looked at it at all. Maybe it's Debian-specific,
so sorry for just telling about it without providing more info.
