OK, not quite the answer to my question. I really would like an official
port, but hey, it's no production server, so I guess..

I take it you unpack in /usr/ports/mail and then do a "portinstall
mail/courier-0.50.0" ?
Install authlib first (I know ;-)
Are the other options like the old port? And what is "reasonably well"

And why is this very good mailer NOT supported on FreeBSD?
