Thanks for the suggestions! I installed qmail totally manually, since I
didn't see a DFly package for it.
There is no binary package because it can't be build without patching
and therefore the package is restricted.
I noticed there is a binary package for Qmail now. Thanks! I tried it,
but it seemed to only partially work. That is, it installed all the
binaries, but qmail-send failed to start. Qmail-smtpd and Qmail-pop3d
do start. When I looked into what was going on, I found that the
installer had not created the file /var/qmail/queue/lock/sendmutex.
Beyond that, it hadn't created any of the subdirectories or files under
/var/qmail/queue. After manually creating sendmutex, I found that
qmail-send still wouldn't start and that's when I noticed that lspawn
and rspawn, which send depends on, weren't starting either. I haven't
had time to figure out the problem with those and they don't give any
errors when they fail.
Thanks again for the package work,
