[RFC] FreeBSD port for dovecot 1.1 series

Hi,

I have put together a preliminary patchset for dovecot 1.1 at:

        http://people.freebsd.org/~delphij/misc/dovecot-1.1-rc4.diff

My intention is to repocopy the current dovecot port to dovecot11 and
make changes on the latter.  In this version of patchset, I have
intentionally removed the following chunk of change which by default
allows gid=0 users to log in.

%%%
@@ -333,6 +338,7 @@
~ # belongs to supplementary groups with non-valid GIDs, those groups are
~ # not set.
~ #first_valid_gid = 1
+first_valid_gid = 0
~ #last_valid_gid = 0

~ # Maximum number of running mail processes. When this limit is reached,
%%%

Please let me know if you want more features, have comments, etc., for
the FreeBSD port.  I am subscribed to this list but I would appreciate
if you could use 'Reply all' which will give me more opportunity to get
your e-mail from the thousands I receive :)

Cheers,

First, I apologize for sitting on my attempt so long, work got busy.  
But just now I did a diff between your result and mine, and some notes:

- I added a CONFLICTS?=     ${PORTNAME}-1.0.* because using portupgrade
on other ports such as postfix tries to pull in dovecot-1.0 as a runtime
depend whether or not 1.1 is already installed and that makes a mess.  I
also added a similar line to the dovecot 1.0 port, which was probably
the more important place.

- Otherwise, you port looks extremely similar in important functionality
to mine.  Although one of the reasons I did not submit it earlier was I
had hoped to add an OPTIONS entry and appropriate pkg-plist support for
some of the newer optional support offered by 1.1, but I don't use any
of them myself.  Its probably better to have a dovecot 1.1 port even
without that part done.
