    I don’t understand. If it is an NFS mount, then it is not a local UFS file system. It doesn’t matter if NFS server and client run on the same machine – From the kernel’s point of view it’s a remote file system, and this does make a difference...

    I’m surprised no one here mentioned Hikari. I’d rather FreeBSD work on having a modern display server in base, then work up the stack from there. X.org is just gross to me.

    x11/xcalc is the only desktop utility I use that is from Twm. I use the pad on my keyboard for it, because it's easier to use more accurately than clicking with a mouse. It's good as it is. A replacement or upgrade would be good though.

    Did you upgrade postfix recently in that jail? If yes, then it's expected. And it's actually setgid despite what the message says. EDIT: you can check postfix installation date e.g. using pkg query %t postfix | xargs date -jf %s

    It's not attractive to me because of the licensing and being based on C++. As you might have noticed i am (for similar reasons) not sold on FLTK either but it actually comes out ahead from my perspective by having the "right" license.

    Is this a local UFS file system, or is it a remote NFSv4 file system? PS: Did you run quotacheck? Do the quota.user and quota.group files exist?
