Message-ID:  <000001c098fa$b34a2280$cc01a8c0@highland>

I submitted this to =questions but didn't receive a response.  I've tried
everything now.  deleting the port all together, cvsup to get the latest,
even a make world last night.

Any Ideas?



I modified the /Makefile for vpopmail to set the prefix to /home and ran
make install without realizing there was already a vpopmail user with a
default directory of /usr/local/vpopmail. (it would be nice if the make
deinstall removed the vpopmail user)...anyhow.

I figure no problem, and remove the user but of course a make deinstall
doesn't complete successfully because the Makefile points to /home as the

SO i remove the /usr/local/vpopmail directory manually and attempt to run
the install again.

and it blows...

i've tried even removed the binary for vpopmail...  any help is greatly
