Since NetBSD ships with Sendmail (and not qmail or whatever other
MTA someone might choose to install), wouldn't it be logical for
the nmh _package_ to be configured to use Sendmail by default?  If
someone has gone to the trouble of configuring an alternate MTA
(whether or not they're going to run an SMTP server) surely they're
capable of recompiling nmh to meet their needs. 

There should be a reasonable default configuration for packages that
works for the majority of people who will be using that package.
Everyone else can compile it themselves.
