Pine does not truely *depend* on a mail-transport-agent (if you don't
count pop-client) as it can send using it's own SMTP feature and it
doesn't care how the mail messages get into the inbox file.

The next version of pine will declare:

Depends: libc5, ncurses3.0
Suggests: mail-delivery-agent
Provides: mail-reader

This, in my estimation, clears up this bug and will be reported done
after the next release of pine.
