I'm trying to setup MailScanner under Mac OS X 10.3.x Server (ie with
postfix). I get the following when running check_mailscanner:

ps: illegal option -- f
usage: ps [-aChjlmMrSTuvwx] [-O|o fmt] [-p pid] [-t tty] [-U user]
           [-N system] [-W swap]
        ps [-L]
Starting MailScanner...
Can't set GID 27 at /opt/MailScanner/bin/MailScanner line 862.

The first message I fixed by adding "Darwin" to the UNAME checks with
the same configuration as BSD in check_mailscanner.

The second error I'm not sure about. Can't seem to find any info about
it. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
