Not sure about Gentoo, but on Red Hat/Fedora servers configuration of
mimedefang-multiplexor is in /etc/sysconfig/mimedefang and the config

# Set to yes if you want to use an embedded Perl interpreter

controls whether you are using embedded perl or not.

If your init script is simply passing parameters to
mimedefang-multiplexor, you should check to see whether the -E parameter
is being specified.  If so, you're using embedded perl.

You can turn the option off and see if that improves your situation.

Also, not sure if you've tried this as well but you can run the
multiplexor in the foreground (using -D) and see if that gives you any
more information.  Also look at the -l and -d options to log additional

Hope that helps.
