System: FreeBSD critter.freebsd.dk 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #0: Wed Aug 29 18:38:59 UTC 2007 root@:/usr/obj/freebsd/src/sys/C5 i386

	I just installed a -CURRENT machine, and the mail/nmh port
	compiles but the programs do not work.

	Adding CFLAGS=-O to the makefile of the port solved the problem.

	In all likelyhood this is merely a band-aid, the problem could be
	in either of nmh or GCC, but without this patch the port is useless.

	try using any of the commands "scan", "show" or "pick"
