I'm also unsure about the tests, I only has a quick look though.

I believe using (cc-for-target) is better than hardcoding gcc here, I
think it's something to do with cross compiling:

  (string-append "CC=" ,(cc-for-target))

I also moved this definition up from the bottom of mail.scm. If everyone
adds packages at the bottom of modules, it makes Git conflicts more
likely, so it's best to avoid the bottom, unless you specifically want
the package to go there.

Generally all fine though,

Thanks again,

Chris
