It's *possible* (after all, we're talking about computers) but it
seems extremely unlikely. Then again, what you're describing is
unlikely anyhow. Just to be clear, you're saying that the mailman
package makefile (/usr/pkgsrc/mail/mailman/Makefile) contained
when you untarred? Which tarball did you use and where did you get it
