After a system update, i noticed that the hold dir from postfix which contains some mail does not get picked up anymore.
So i set MailScanner in debug mode, and i get the following error.

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mailscanner start
Starting mailscanner.

In Debugging mode, not forking...

Someone knows what i can do about this?

The system is FreeBSD 8.2

I did only updated some perl modules.
All is installed from ports
I rebuid mailscanner, plus perl and all perl modules, still get this error.
