This works however someone forgot to pull up fetchmailconf from rev
6.3.14 to 6.3.17. Please do this also cause it could cause some
problems in future releases.
Actually on a side-note would it not be advantagous to make
fetchmailconf part of the fetchmail build again with the build options
that are in pkgsrc it seems to me
that one could just define an option to build with fetchmailconf or
without it. and just have the build process handle the rest.
