http://git.savannah.nongnu.org/cgit/nmh.git/tree/etc/distcomps is the
stock one for comparison.

Another way is

    echo y | dist -whatnowproc send -to foo

The icky ‘y’ is needed to answer send(1)'s ‘Use ".../42"?’ message
stating the draft prepared by dist(1) and communicated with the mhdraft
environment variable.  send doesn't ask if its -draft is given, but
-whatnowproc doesn't accept ‘send -draft’ as it tries to exec a program
called that single word.

None of this fits together too well.

Cheers, Ralph.
