At least on my mail tool, this message was pretty mangles and I am not
going to try to de-mangle it.

Looking at the config log, you need MIME::WordDecoder and it is not in
ports. Looks like someone needs to port and add it to the BUILD_DEPENDS.
Until then, mimedefang is broken.

You can try getting it from CPAN and installing it. Most perl packages can
be installed that way, but that means that you won't get notification of
updates, so writing a port would be the best choice.

I suggest opening a bug report at FreeBSD Bugzilla Main Page
<https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/>. Even if the problem is not fixed, at
least the port can be marked as BROKEN.
