As NetBSD does not ship any of the mickey-mouse secret mail
cryptographic programs (xsend, xget, enroll), there is no good
reason to keep /var/spool/secretmail.

The old SunOS man page for xsend, xget, and enroll mentions that 
the cryptosystem used by these programs is "breakable".


Observe the presense of /var/spool/secretmail, and the lack of
xget(1), xsend(1), and enroll(1).


Remove /var/spool/secretmail from /usr/src/distrib/sets/base/mi
and the secretmail referece in hier(7) man page.  There may be
other places where secret mail appears?
