Sorry Roger - this took a little while to come through for the following
	"It is too easy to upgrade FreeBSD!".

Let me explain.  I've got a new box on the network and thought that I'd
upgrade it to 3.2-LATEST, from 3.2-LATESTBUTONE.  I cvsup'd and rebuilt it
which took 2 hours 30 min, make a new kernel, mergemastered the config
and rebooted.  After about 20 minutes I realised that I'd upgraded the _wrong_
box! :) :)  The box I upgraded was melt.server.pavilion.net aka
listserver.uk.freebsd.org, which coincidently hasn't been rebooted since
I installed postfix/mailman and therefore I didn't know that postfix didn't 
start at boot time!  Doh!.

All fixed now though.
