So it looks like the changes necessary would be threefold:
1) extract the .ncx file out of the kindlegensrc.zip and place it is a (newly created) misc directory, alongside the Images directory
2) reference the .ncx file in the <manifest> tag of the .opf file.
3) add a toc="toc" attribute to the <spine> tag of the .opf file.

I haven't looked at the source for mobiunpack, to know how hard or easy this would be, nor do I know what sort of source control is being used, or where it is located.
The ncx in the kindlegensrc isn't the information in the Mobipocket file. The source files are just stored at the end of the file by kindlegen for mysterious purposes. They can be stripped from the Kindle ebook without losing the ncx navigation info in the file.

Perhaps MobiUnpack should be tweaked to also export any unknown binary data in the original file. Hmm...
