I just checked the FreeBSD 'Makefile' for Mailscanner. There are
several 'patches' that are applied as well as PATH modifications, etc.
to the basic Mailscanner installation.

If it works for you, then fine. If it suddenly starts failing, you will
need to completely remove your custom installation and then use the
FreeBSD ports system. In fact, you would probably be better off
removing the Mailscanner port prior to installing from source anyway.
Since they install in different locations, unless you manually modified
it, it would help to avoid any unnecessary problems.

The difference between dogs and cats is that dogs come when they're
called.  Cats take a message and get back to you.
