Ok. I tested it for some days now, and it seems to be reasonably stable
for me. I did not have some patch for the proposed mail/dspam-devel port,
but here is what i noted in order to use it on my SMTP server (running

# cd /usr/ports/mail/dspam-devel
# make showconfig
===> The following configuration options are set for dspam-devel-3.0.0:
     CGI=off "Install CGI (pulls in apache)"
Although i will use the CGI, i did not enable it here since it just
want to install apache which is already installed on my system (apache2).

An other point: i create a /usr/local/etc/dspam/untrusted.mailer_args
with "/usr/local/bin/procmail -d $u", but since it seems there is a
problem with rights - in order to be able to use it correctly - i need
 - add each username in /usr/local/etc/dspam/trusted.users;
 - make /usr/local/bin/dspam executable for others.
I don't know if these rights concerns are "port" related or "FreeBSD"

I installed the following packages to be able to graph the statistics:
 # portinstall -rR p5-GD p5-GD-Graph3d p5-GD-TextUtil
Maybe a good point to add as dependencies for the CGI flag?...

For users's CGI graphs, the USER_LOGGING flag is needed, but there is
a little mistake:

That's all for the moment. You can contact email me for any question
or remark. And thanks for your help porting this great tool :)

PS : I noted that there is a PR for this port under ports/68154, but the
content of the present email as nothing to do with it.
