It runs fine for me, though having not used this option before I can't say
if there's something wrong with the output.

# pflogstats --type=uce < /var/log/maillog

# pkg_info -I postfix-* pflogstats-*
pflogstats-1.0.1,1  Postfix Log Statistics Reporter
postfix-2.1.1,1     A secure alternative to widely-used Sendmail

I don't see a "No Data Found!" error.

Are you reading your logs via STDIN? In the last update, pflogstats lost
the ability to take filename arguments, so you need to use the shell to
direct the log data.

Maybe, but Wietse continues to stick to his assertion that the log format
is undocumented and subject to change. It does change, too!

I have yet to see another report of this error.

His 'puter died and had to be replaced by the latest technology[1] and his
employer has been treating him like a roman galley slave.
