This might or might not be related to the original post,
  hope I am not hijacking.

But if any of you are putting up a new system on FreeBSD anyway, maybe
you can watch out for the following and report the specifics to the
maintainer of the port.

Last time I setup an all new mailscanner system was under pressure late
in the night during days of chaos, but if I remember correctly:

1. The port patched some files to get freebsd-specific paths.
2. I think "make initial-config" overwrote some of those files
     with unpatched files from the distribution.

Or maybe I was just tired. It should be tried on a fresh computer during
daylight hours to be more specific.

Thank you,
