That doesn't appear to be the issue. Apparently I was wrong in my
earlier assessment. You cannot build imap-uw in the way that I want by
putting CREATEPROTO=mbxproto in the make line. It works on OSX but not
At this point, I think its just easier for me to build it by myself
without the port, which I didn't want to do. It would be nice if the
port had a build option to make mbx format mailboxes the default, since
they are far better, but the port maintainer hasn't responded to any
email from me so I guess its not going to happen.
