[bug-mailutils] Dcc field

I found that the "Dcc:" header field is not getting processed for aliases. 
expansion.  I first asked the MH-E people about this not knowing where the 
boundaries lie between MH-E and mailutils MH programs yet. But, according to 
them the problem would be in an MH program.

Here are the details:

I don't know which mailutils MH program source file would be responsible for 
this (Dcc:) field header processing of outgoing mail, but I will look into it 
if you tell me which file or files it might be in.

I can't think of anything in the .mh_profile that relates to this problem.
