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

The function mh-print-msg did not work on my machine.
So, I debugged the function and saw, that it does a
(expand-file-name "mhl" mh-lib) to generate the command to format the
mail before printing.  On my machine, the variable mh-lib is set to
/usr/local/etc/nmh and this directory does not contain the program
mhl.  I recognized that there is another variable mh-lib-progs that
is set to the directory where the program mhl actually exists.

So, I am wondering, if the variable mh-lib-progs should be used to
generate the format command.

If so, here is a patch for the necessary changes:
