i think you're going to have to run mhonarc using your existing
listname.mbox file as input.  you may have to split it into individual
messages and feed each to mhonarc.

i posted some scripts to this list a while ago that do some of this work,
but i'm using mhonarc along with glimpse and wilma so my stuff may be
overkill for a mhonarc-only installation.  you may get some useful ideas
by looking at them.  search the archives for my messages regarding
mhonarc, wilma and glimpse.
