I meant nearly every path in this program is hard-coded. It doesnt actually
run xterm but a few other progs. Especially disgusting are /usr/bin/pgp and
/usr/bin/gpg because Ive compiled pgp locally and it still printed:
sh: /usr/bin/pgp: No such file or directory
This program is mutt. Its easy to correct but maintainer dostnt want to.
