Bug#4526: popclient now requires a ~/.poprc :(

Package: popclient
Version: 3.05-1

$ popclient mail.host
/s2/redhat/home/home.cjf//.poprc: No such file or directory

This used to work.  I'm disappointed that the new version isn't backward
compatible.  Since I'm resposible for maybe 10 pop servers on 5 different
networks, I prefer to just put the applicable host on the command line
and get prompted for the passwd --- just like our old popclient did.
