compiling at "No mail command specified"


I'm trying to compile the source package at, and I recieve

Code:
ln -s -f at atq
ln -s -f at atrm
gcc -c -O -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DVERSION=\"3.1.8\" -DETCDIR=\"/etc\" -DLOADAVG_MX=0.8 -DDAEMON_USERNAME=\"daemon\" -DDAEMON_GROUPNAME=\"daemon\" -DLFILE=\"/var/spool/atjobs/.SEQ\" -Wall atd.c
atd.c:452:2: #error "No mail command specified."
atd.c:113: warning: 'rcsid' defined but not used
make: *** [atd.o] Error 1
My question is does anyone know how I can compile this without requiring a mail command. I do not need one on my computer (except obviously for this program), and I can't compile currently without one.

I thought maybe the --disable-<FEATURE> flag might do it, but how do I find out the feature which I have to disable. Thanks in advance for any help.

Usually running
Code:
./configure --help
will list all the available options you can use to compile a program from source.
