    I've uninstalled openssl port and reinstalled it, cleared the port package db, and reinstalled them.

    I'm ran /scripts/eximup --force

    But its getting stuck on portupgrades.

    This is a brand new install -- FreeBSD v6.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Doing the commands that restart_exim boils down to on FreeBSD it simply does not start it (yes the exim port is hosed but that a different issue):

    peters out everytime after it opens /etc/group and moves on:

    I saw this in chksrvd logs:

    mainlog was 644 root:mailnull

    so i removed it and it was recreated as 640 mailnull mail on restart and its all running
