I have read through the archives and seen that newer versions of Spamassassin have fits with freebsd because of an outdated perl version. I noticed that there is a SpamAssassin 2.6 port out for freeBSD 4.9 but was wondering if anyone has had success with installing it on a 4.8 system?
FreeBSD 4.8 should be recent enough that you can use a modern ports tree without the CONFLICTS feature causing problems, so use CVSUP to update your ports tree to the current version. From there, install /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8, and then run "use.perl port".
That should give you the latest version of Perl, from which you can then install the p5-Mail-SpamAssassin port (or spamass-milter, or amavisd, or whatever). You can also try installing the software via "perl -MCPAN -e shell \;", and do an "install Mail::SpamAssassin", but the ports mechanism is better tested.
