(require 'nnmail) breaks rmail-output

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.6, Motif)
 of Tue Oct 31 2000 on magic
configured using `configure  --with-x-toolkit=motif --with-pop --with-x=yes'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I installed epop3mail, which enhances RMAIL's POP3 mechanisms.  When I did
this, the rmail-output command stopped working.  I tracked it down to the
fact that epop3mail.el contains (require 'nnmail), and in
lisp/gnus/message.el, it does:

(autoload 'rmail-output "rmail")

This doesn't work, because rmail-output is actually defined in "rmailout".
It's also unnecessary, since rmail-output's autoload is defined in the
default Emacs environment.

I worked around it by commenting out (require 'nnmail) in epop3mail.el;
doing this doesn't seem to have any effect since I'm not using GNUS.
