[opensuse] mailx: how can I force the correct encoding of an attachment?

Sending an email as attachment, type message/rfc822:

mailx -r <me@home> -a afile.eml reci@pient </dev/null

With an older mailx (Heirloom mailx 12.2 01/07/07), this is correctly
attached, encoded as 7bit.

With a newer mailx (Heirloom mailx 12.5 7/5/10), it is encoded as
base64, which cannot be read by most email agents. (Thunderbird can't
read it, mailparse doesn't parse it). According to rfc2045, it isn't
even permitted.

Does anyone know how to make mailx encode that attacment as 7bit, as in
the older mailx version?
