I configure pf and spamd with grey listing on freebsd 5.3 and i have a
problem with pfctl :

pfctl : /dev/fd/7: No such file or directory

I have build a new kernel with support for packet filter :
device pf
device pflog
device pfsync
options ALTQ
options ALTQ_CBQ
options ALTQ_RED
options ALTQ_RIO
options ALTQ_HFSC
options ALTQ_CDNR
options ALTQ_PRIQ
#options ALTQ_DEBUG

starting pf by /etc/rc.conf:

installation of spamd by the port tree /usr/ports/mail/spamd

i start the spamd daemon with parameter ?g for using grey listing and after
4 or 5 seconds appear the error message

Can you help my for this error ?
