A few month ago I compiled mh 6.8.3. I took the original sources, applied the
diffs found on sunsite.unc.edu in /pub/Linux/system/Mail/readers
(mh-6.8.3-diffs.tar.gz), and as I can remember, there were no major problems.
PS: The single problem I have with MH on linux is, that comp doesn't work
with the forw statement in compose files. If someone experienced the same,
and found a solution, I would be very happy to here of it.
