Description mats 2005-11-13 18:50:21 UTC
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 
with it.
