Wise words. The kernel and world builds/installs went fine, but soon
afterwards I noticed a problem with the mail/dcc-dccd port (required, in
my case, by SpamAssassin), which would not rebuild, complaining that the
base sendmail was not found or too old.
Since I use Postfix, I had set WITHOUT_SENDMAIL in /etc/src.conf. I shall
remove it and rebuild. C'est la vie!
