That worked perfectly. There's a number of "Error code 1"s in there. But at least I
can read up on 'em in a more leisurely fashion.:c)

I *had* been pretty much doing that. The Postfix config screen, though, presents a
screen full of alphabet soup options. It was late. I was tired. I should've known
I came across instant-workstation late last year while using Greg Lehey's Complete
FreeBSD book to install 5.0-Release on my wife's dual-boot (Windows ME). The
port installs fifteen/sixteen sub-ports (acroread, gimp, kde, etc.), and the postfix one
gets installed towards the end of the instant-workstation install. I suspect I now have
to go into each sub-port and 'make clean,' since the inst.-work. didn't get that far.
