According to the documentation at the top of src/getmail.c it is intended
at "Moving mail from a maildir. Written in C to avoid a race condition."
This program is called from lib/rmail.sl. If getmail is not installed,
then rmail.sl will fail. To answer your question, I think you should
install this program. However there will be two issues:
1) We should not install it in /usr/bin, because there is already another
package (called getmail) that has /usr/bin/getmail.
2) Debian Policy mandates that every program in PATH has a man page.
