It wont work correctly, I'm the person thats been maintaining FreeBSD
mailscanner port for the last few versions, please stop spreading false
information. This also isn't specific to perl on FreeBSD, Linux users have
reported this issue as well.

While MS will start and will appear to work, certain attachments (appears
to be zip files) will trigger a taint mode error. See my original post.

Since the MS community isn't addressing this, i have made a work around
which runs the master script as he run as user, this disabled taint mode.
The new port should be available shortly.
