The package installs a file /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/spamd which I recommend
to use for starting spamd. Just copy it to /etc/rc.d/ manually and add
"spamd=YES" to /etc/rc.conf.

This script sets the PATH and I am not aware of problems with the
It also increases the limit of open files (to 128 by default; you can
set 'spamd_fdlimit' to the desired value in /etc/rc.conf) for spamd
because the default of 64 on a stock NetBSD systems can be too small if
you use a few custom rules with DNS blacklists.
