Yep, figured as much :)

May I ask how you did that?
I did the following:
cd /usr/ports/mail/qmail
make extract
cd work/qmail-1.03
patch -p1 < ~ltning/qmail-env-scanner.patch
Which resulted in all hunks failing to apply.
I have *no* idea why that happened.

Perhaps I need to run 'make patch' or whatever first, to apply the
FreeBSD patches? Though I believe there are no patches for qmail-smtpd,
or it would likely have failed to apply when doing 'make build'..

In any case, I'm writing my own qmail-envelope-scanner now - but since
I'm writing it in PHP (using the php executable) with a PostgreSQL
back-end instead of Perl and MySQL, I doubt anyone else
will be interested in it. Let me know if I'm wrong.
