Well if you don't mind the bleeding edge too much, I have attached my  
own port directory for the latest beta (I run a lot of Macs so need  
the MIME support in the latest beta). It might not be quite as good  
the one that Jan-Peter officially puts together but he is so busy at  
the moment the port is quite old.

Just untar the file in /usr/ports/mail and overwrite the mailscanner  
directory. Once there, proceed as normal.

Normal caveats apply but it's working fine on my boxes.
