Many thanks; I have now a new version, with SQLite back-end in it.

I will test / modify the port to depend on what apache is installed and
pull in apache 1.x otherwise. This cgi part needs more testing anyway;
I'll try to find some time for it, as I don't use it.

Don't. This way you deny the logic of trusted users. root and postfix
should be enough.

Both + Postfix (since postfix maillbox_command drops privileges to the
destination user).

Now the port will install with 4511 by default.

Thanks, I don't use CGI at all and didn't have just didn't have the time
to check.

Yes, I know it; the only thing that I'll add from there is in the
-pkgconfigdir = $(libdir)/pkgconfig
+pkgconfigdir = $(prefix)/libdata/pkgconfig

Unregistered ;) FreeBSD "user"
