hotwayd/mutt don't want to work together.

OK, I have Hotwayd, fetchmail, procmail, and mutt set up. I run fetchmail, and it says it has retrieved 3 messages. It puts them in '/var/spool/mail/root'. But when I go to mutt, it says that /var/spool/mail/root is not a mailbox. When I check it, there is indeed a file there called root. All of my emails are contained within.

Mutt gives me this error:

[root@localhost root]# mutt -f /var/spool/mail/root
sh: line 1: gettext: command not found
/var/spool/mail/root is not a mailbox.
