verbose or debug output?

I really hate to bug the list with a question that I ought to be able
to find in the documentation, but I've spent hours looking through the
documentation and can't find the answer to my question.

  MHonArc v2.0.0 beta 3
  perl, version 5.003 with EMBED
  MH 6.8.3

MAXSIZE not set.
EXPIREAGE set to 2635200.
IDXSIZE set to 300.
2080 messages in the archive.

I've been running mhonarc -add for a couple of months; last night I
rebuilt the archive from scratch:

mhonarc -outdir ${QTDIR} \
        -rcfile  /local/www/anglican.justus/lib/mhonarc.resource \
        ${PDIR} ${ARCDIR}

PDIR contains 321 messages and ARCDIR contains 2827 messages.

My problem is that I absolutely cannot figure out why it did not
include 1068 of the messages in the archive. I'm sure it's something
simple. I've checked the dates (they are all recent). Some of the
not-included messages are only a couple of days old.

So what I'm looking for is a debug mode that will have mhonarc tell me
what decision it is making about a message, and why. If there is no
such debug mode I guess I will have to dive into the Perl and produce
one, but I don't like messing with other people's software packages
unless I have to.
