My problems were with an old source of metamail from gatekeeper,
not x.org as I had thought. The metamail 2.7 sources compile
cleanly (or near enough) on NetBSD (By the way, why is FreeBSD
so damn different?). Elm 2.4pl23 is pre-compiled for
NetBSD-Amiga and is at
already has hooks to metamail, so we don't really have to worry
about recompiling elm (who did this in the first place?).
