Native sunbird issues.... (deskutils/sunbird)

I posted this to questions@ the other day... thought I'd try here too.


Anyone using the deskutils/sunbird (not deskutils/linux-sunbird)?

I had been using the linux-sunbird for some time (probably because I
could never get the native port to run, don't remember), but I recently
used the libtool+gtk issues I was experiencing as an excuse to try out
my "rebuild my machine quickly scripts".... and decided to install
deskutils/sunbird instead.

In any case.  The native port does not seem to run for me, and I was
wondering if anyone was using it successfully, and if they had any
hurdles to overcome in getting it working.

I did the normal "make install clean" in the appropriate dir (everything
went well).  Running it for the first time, I see the process in top,
and it writes a bit to the console, but then exits.  All subsequent
attempts to run it result in the following at the console:

    Starting calendar alarm service
    error creating table cal_calendars -- probably already exists
    error creating table cal_calendars_prefs -- probably already exists
    observer added
    observer removed

and the process exits.  FWIW, I seem to recall seeing the above at the
console even with a working deskutils/linux-sunbird.

Using RELENG_6 as of yesterday.

Any ideas?  Any more information needed?
