Hi,

I am having some problems installing Postfix to my FreeBSD 5.4 machine. This is what happens:

su-2.05b# cd /usr/ports/mail/postfix

su-2.05b# make install clean

===> postfix-2.5.5,1 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/perl5.8.6 - found
===> postfix-2.5.5,1 depends on shared library: sasl2.2 - not found
===> Verifying install for sasl2.2 in /usr/ports/security/cyrus-sasl2
===> cyrus-sasl-2.1.22_2 cannot install: unknown LIBTOOL version: 15.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/security/cyrus-sasl2.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/postfix.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/postfix.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/postfix.

---------

I am not quite sure how to resolve this part:

===> cyrus-sasl-2.1.22_2 cannot install: unknown LIBTOOL version: 15.

I would appreciate any help on this issue. Thanks.

I'm not sure about this specific error, but you could try removing all libtool related software with:

Code:
pkg_delete libtool\*
And then attempt to reinstall Postfix. Libtool IIRC is only used during the build process, so uninstalling it should be fine (it will pull it back in).

Thank you for your help. I have done as you instructed, the Postfix installation gets a lot further, but fails at this point:

Everything is up to date. Type 'make test' to run test suite.
===> Installing for perl-5.8.8_1
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if lang/perl5.8 already installed
/usr/local/sbin/pkg_info: not found
*** Error code 127

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/postfix.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/postfix.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/postfix.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

It is strange that it is looking for pkg_info(1) in that path, it should be in /usr/sbin/pkg_info. Do you have any weird environment variables set, or is sysutils/pkg_install installed?
