rectify a mistake concerning formail/procmail

The program erroneously assumed that either formail or procmail could be
used (this mistake was introduced by EB in an earlier commit).
Rectifying the situation: we use formail, but suggest to install the
package procmail on those systems where the formail utility is contained
in the procmail package.

     71I need the program `formail' to process your mailboxes. You can provide the
     72full path to the formail utility using the `-cmd' command-line switch.
     73
     74Perhaps `formail' is not installed on your system. Try installing the `formail'
     75package using your distribution's package manager. The formail utility might be
     76contained in the `procmail' package (e.g., Ubuntu 11.10), so you may need to
     77look for the latter instead.
