Can't help but notice that your editing /etc/rc.d/mimedefang, and not seeing
the changes propogate, but your configure script is pointing sysconfdir to
/usr/local/etc. Wouldn't be at all suprised if mimedefang is actually
reading the configuration data out of there instead, which might explain a
few things. Not sure about why the multiplexor isn't starting up though,
unless there's a permissions problem.
