It compares the config files to the original version. If they are the
same, it is may delete them. It seems like you have multiple packages
already isntalled for nmh. E.g. it removed the entries for nmh-1.0.4nb4,
but you also had nmh-1.0.4. That's a broken installation and the
infrastructure is not written to deal with that as it should not be in
that state in the first place.

So, the question should be, how could it get into such a state, and how can this be resolved...

The machine in question is in production since 1.6.2 came out, with packages only updated when security or functinality absolutely required it. Nothing fancy, always using the pkgtools from 1.6.2. Those must have caused the double installations...
