We switched from ports to Julian's pkg system last year on both our 
FreeBSD MailScanner boxes. Nothing against the port, but doing so 
allowed us to use the newest release if needed, provides a way to have 
multiple releases installed choosing them by changing a symlink, and if 
we have a problem, Julian knows *exactly* where everything is installed.

Very happy with the result.


The whole internet thing is sucking the life out of me,
there ain't no pony in there.
