OK, I did not notice this

    Installing nmh, guided by script
    For routine installation on popular platforms, the build_nmh shell
    script can be used to guide you through configuration.  It will then
    build and optionally (with -i) install in the configured location.

thanks, good to know about the 'build_nmh' script.

or install the Fedora RPM (sudo dnf install nmh).

I will probably start using dnf install nmh for the next release  or
for other new installs.  Nice that the package is up to date.

I assume the *.rpmnew feature is used by the rpm package, so config
files do not get clobbered in upgrades.

I assume I should back up > /usr/local/nmh/etc
and then use make to remove the current install. How/which target?

There is an uninstall target, but I've never used it.  I just remove the
entire nmh tree (/usr/local/nmh/ in your case).
