If this is the mime.el from flim, the current version seems to use
mmencode only with XEmacs, where it is included in xemacs21-bin.
Otherwise it appears to use utilities from mime-codecs.
Is mime-compose.el packaged for Debian?

I think that would be best; mmencode was removed from metamail almost
seven years ago.
