Alright. I have exactly the same problem, asked ports@ and got only an
off-list mail, confirming this. Plus, one of a chap who has a similar
problem with another application.
I wonder why there was nothing on the list, though. I know all too well,
that the people here care for correctness, though the start sequence seems
faltering, or maybe unclear?
I do also confirm, that the problem appears only on my smallest and
oldest box: 1.7 GHz, 256 MB.
Solution? Remove the sendmail-flags from rc.conf.local and put a 'postfix
start' at the end of rc.local. That should help.
I just saw the same thing after upgrading my Mac Mini G4 from 4.0 to
4.4-current and upgrading Postfix to 2.6.20080726. I have the sasl2
flavor installed, so perhaps it's a problem with that, as mentioned
later in this thread?
At your suggestion, I changed sendmail_flags to "NO" in /etc/
rc.conf.local and simply added a /usr/local/sbin/postfix start to/etc/
rc.local . All working fine now...
