Yeah, that is it. Just configure, make, make install.

Daniel is trying to make it a little simplier to issue a product which would compile on multiple platforms and be easier to support. You can use command line flags for some things... chief among them the '-c' file to specify a stored external .hmrc file.

Since updating the documentation isn't moving as quickly as updating the code, you can use 'hypermail -v' to generate a a blank template for your .hmrc file.

   csh> hypermail -v > .hmrc

Then edit .hmrc file with your favorite text editor.
