Not true.

It is used if you specify the chroot option for running the postfix
daemons, which is the way that the (not yet in the tree) fully
integrated version is supposed to run.

Leave it alone. It is not a bug.

ully > integrated version is supposed to run. Right, it's explained in the examples/chroot-setup/NETBSD1 file of the Postfix source tree: mkdir /var/spool/postfix/etc chmod 755 /var/spool/postfix/etc cd /etc ; cp localtime services resolv.conf /var/spool/postfix/etc Sorry for the trouble. -- Marc Baudoin -=- <>
