What you could do is:

1. Stop cron so that incoming.pl is not run.
2. Join all the .bak files into one new file (cat *.bak > import.mbox)
3. Stop sendmail so no new email is delivered (any incoming mail won't get lost, it will get delivered again once you start sendmail)
4. Move the existing mbox file to mbox.tmp
5. Move import.mbox to the name of your normal mbox file
6. Run incoming.pl
7. Move the mbox.tmp back to the normal mbox file.
8. Start sendmail
9. Start cron

Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions,

Alex
