When installing from scratch, and selecting to install all available ports from the CD, there is a package conflict between QT-3.2.1 and XFMAIL. The installer will continuously loop with trying to install QT-3.2.1, and every time abort due to the conflict.
When installing from scratch, I usually select all packages and ports to install, since they are free after all. (Adding a button to install all ports would be nice by the way.) After manually selecting all of the ports, by putting an 'x' next to them, The install will continue and will stop when it gets to QT-3.2.1, saying there is a package conflict with XFMAIL-?.?.?_?. If I click OK, it tryies to reinstall QT-3.2.1, and again ends in a conflict error. It will perform this loop endlessly.
The only current way to get arround the problem is to go the Terminal 4 (ALT+F4) and remove the installed XFMAIL ported application. There should be a check after selecting the programs whether there is a conflict, so that this does not occur.
