Yeah, it's the m_lines member of struct message, in def.h.  FWIW,
NetBSD is far from alone in this; every Berkeley mail I've used does it
this way - including mtXinu 4.3+NFS, SunOS 4.*, and NeXT release 2.1.

Whoever fixes this, I'd recommend looking over _all_ the shorts in mail
and converting those that don't really need to be shorts to ints.
