Is this going to be in $HOME? If that's the case, it should probably be in ~/.config or ~/.cache instead (whichever is appropriate for the purpose of the file)

@serebit not worth it:

/usr/spool/mail/xxxx        Default folder for incoming mail.
~/mail                      Default directory for mail folders.
~/.addressbook              Default address book file.
~/.signature                File used for signature, appended to every message.
~/.pine-debug[1-4]          Diagnostic log for debugging.
~/.pinerc                   Personal alpine config file.
~/.pine-crash               Debug information useful to debug a crash.
~/.newsrc                   News subscription/state file.
~/.mailcap                  Personal mail capabilities file.
~/.mime.types               Personal file extension to MIME type mapping
/etc/mailcap                System-wide mail capabilities file.
/etc/mime.types             System-wide file ext. to MIME type mapping
/usr/local/lib/    Local pointer to system administrator.
/usr/local/lib/pine.conf    System-wide configuration file.
/usr/local/lib/pine.conf.fixed Non-overridable configuration file.
~/.alpine-smime/ca          Directory that contains Certificate Authority files.
~/.alpine-smime/private     Directory that contains private key(s).
~/.alpine-smime/public      Directory that contains public key(s).
/tmp/.\usr\spool\mail\xxxx  Per-folder mailbox lock files.
~/.pine-interrupted-mail    Message which was interrupted.
~/mail/postponed-msgs       For postponed messages (drafts)
~/mail/sent-mail            Outgoing message archive (FCC).
~/mail/saved-messages       Default destination for Saving messages.

@hansk See inline comments. Minor things, but a nice first go at this. Cheers.


Should be network.mail


pkgconfig() goes first in our alphabetical ordering (I know, weird)

Neither of those builddeps are required. They're both part of system.devel.

You don't need to bump it yet, it hasn't landed. Can set it back to 1.
