This is a half-hearted ITP for GNU mailutils

feedback before I proceed.

My only interest in mailutils is that it provides a utility
movemail.exe, which is used by emacs.[*]  But I looked into providing a
complete build of mailutils and various subpackages along the lines of
Debian[**], and it turned out to be straightforward.  My cygport file
and patches are attached.  I ran the testsuite, and there were 42
failures and 3 skips out of 978 tests.  The failures ought to be looked
at, but I don't this is too bad.

FWIW, even on Debian, the tests succeed until comsatd tests 2-7 all
fail, at which point make check terminates.  So if those are your first
failures, it may just be the testsuite.

No, the comsatd tests all pass.  The failures I'm seeing are in imap4d,
maidag, and sieve.  And for some reason that I haven't figured out, the
pop3d tests aren't run.  The tests use dejagnu, and they report that
runtest can't be found.

I found a workaround, and the pop3d tests now run and all 112 pass. So I'm feeling a little more confident that the build is OK. I'll probably send a real ITP within a few days.
