I would also prefer to patch the stable version of mutt. It did work 
(with UTF-8 support!) when compiled in UTF-8-enabled gcc-3.4 based LFS 
(aka the 6.x-utf8-r0 LiveCD).

The issue is that I have no working patch here. It is easy to create a 
patch that fixes a compilation problem. But in this case, there is a 
second problem: segfault at startup.

And there is no distro to steal the fix from: they all use Mutt-1.5 :(
