FreeBSD team,

Can anyone help? I upgraded Perl and urgently need to reinstall Amavisd-new
except it seems to have disappeared from the PKG repository? Our mail
server is currently therefore down.

Where has amavisd-new gone?!

Does anyone have any ideas? I don’t really want to install from ports
unless absolutely necessary as I prefer keeping everything managed in PKG.
