1. By default the cclient uses the old-fashioned unix type of mail folder
format. Included in cclient there is an alternative, MBX format, which
is recommended by the Pine development team as a more effecient format, which
it really is. The mail/cclient port does not offer any convinient way of
using that as the default folder format. I suggest that there is an options
to patch the source to get MBX as the default mailbox format.
2. The mail/cclient port has serveral options. Today they are handled in
the old-fashioned way which requires that the user includes those as options
on the command line when upgrading, which makes upgrades more cumbersome.
I suggets that the mail/cclient port uses settings with OPTIONS to achieve
a simpler handling.
Fix: The patch below will update the mail/cclient Makefile to support the two
suggested changes. I have locally tested the patch, and found no problems
