Thanks for that Mathieu - I didn't know about that one.


When I run it, it tells me that it's going to remove my cyrus-SASL port. 
I installed that (via its port) so that I can use SSL/TLS authentication 
on my Dovecot server (installed via the dovecot2 port). So Cyrus is not 
a build dependency of anything - why is it offering to remove it?
