This is what I've done today to resolve my issues.
p5-Filesys-Statvfs-Df error (FIXED)
-Fixed by removing it from the ports tree.
-Ran cvsup -g -L 2 portsupdatefile
-Went to /usr/ports/devel/p5-Filesys-Statvfs-Df-0.68
Result: Successful installation
-removed from ports tree
- Ran cvsup -g -L 2 portsupdatefile
- went to /usr/ports/mail/mailscanner
Result: Successful installation
went to /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8.8
I wanted to make sure perl 5.8.8 was installed corectly since I
re-installed p5-Filesys-Statvfs-Df-0.68 and Mailscanenr-4.54.6. After
running make then make install, It didn't re--install anything. It
quickly went back to the command line.
Since all of the above was OK, I then ran the script
perl-after-upgrade. It fixed 172 packages.
NEXT, I RAN:
Ran /usr/local/sbin/MailScanner --lint
This is the error I am getting:
Could not read file /var/run/MailScanner.pid at
/usr/local/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/Config.pm line 2317
Error in line 162, file "/var/run/MailScanner.pid" for pidfile does not
exist (or can not be read) at
/usr/local/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/Config.pm line 2487

Checking for SpamAssassin errors (if you use it)...
You want to use SpamAssassin but have not installed it. at
/usr/local/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/SA.pm line 131
and unpack it and run ./install.sh to install it, then restart
MailScanner. at /usr/local/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/SA.pm line 132
I will run without SpamAssassin for now, you will not detect much spam
until you install SpamAssassin. at
/usr/local/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/SA.pm line 133
MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = clamav"
Found these virus scanners installed: clamav

Sorry, I'm not BSD expert at all, I can't help you. Sorry about that.
Running perl 5.8.7 shouldn't cause any problems, I run much older
versions than that myself and have no problems. It's just a matter of
having the relevant versions of the MailScanner-required Perl modules
You can see the versions of all the Perl modules installed that
MailScanner requires by running the command
See what that says, and if it says anything is missing. Then you could
just use CPAN or the ports system to upgrade/install the missing
Once MailScanner --versions works, try
and check that works okay. Once that works, you should be ready to go.
I hope that lot is some help to you.
