Yesterday I upgraded a 5.1 system to 5.4. I then cvsuped the ports tree and rebuilt Postfix from mail/postfix.
I am having problems with spawn and pipe. Spawn complains postfix/spawn: fatal: unknown user name: nobody although nobody is a user on the system. Changing the the user in master.cf does not improve things. Pipe complains postfix/pipe: fatal: invalid option: ? I've asked the question on the postfix-users list, and with respect to the pipe problem Wietse has responded: "> postfix/pipe: fatal: invalid option: ? You built Postfix with the GNU version of the getopt() system routine. That version is not compatible with the FreeBSD getopt() system routine. To build Postfix on FreeBSD you MUST USE the FreeBSD getopt() system routine, not the GNU version." Is this likely to be the case if I installed from the port? If so, how do I get around it? And any suggestions about spawn?
