This looks good, but on a minimal system how many other packages

For now, "openssl" (or "nss") and "krb5-libs". Is it OK for a minimal
system?

Both of those ought to be on a system anyhow (openssh would need them).

I was concerned that things like imap support could pull in a pile of
other deps

Nope, all such are supported by nail itself.


Regarding the minimal install -- Does it have Mozilla's nss library or not? For the "Security Consolidation" process, recently started in Fedora, we should build mailx/nail against nss (instead of openssl). On the other hand, if the current "minimal installs" don`t have nss, then IMHO we should still use openssl (at least while openssh uses it)...

openssl is required by nash which is needed by mkinitrd which is in turn needed by kernel. so IMHO openssl is here to stay, too.
