Without more details, we cannot help you.
Dspam's documentation should be rewrote, and it is on my to do list, but
it will happen for the 3.x.

Agree. For example the 3.x showed, where dspam has been rewrote, showed
But since all new features are added on the devel branch and some people
could make good use of them, this -devel port will help them. And it
would give a chance for changes to be easily tested on FreeBSD before
they are in the stable release. The bug in my PR is happening only on
FreeBSD (it seems that our strsep(3) slightly differs from those on some
linux, despite the their claim that it is from bsd).
