It's not necessary for normal functioning of munin, so it should not be a 
dependancy. Instead the comment in munin.conf should be expanded to point 
out the fact that a mail package or specific mail command is needed if you 
want to use that feature. I for one have installed mailx only on virtual 
machines but not on the host machines as it is not necessary there.
