qpsmtpd won't start, can't access Net/
Message ID:
Thanks all, good stuff there for me to follow up on.

Net::IP is not listed as a dependency, it should be.  I'll see if I
can get hold of the qpsmtpd ebuild developers and get a bug filed.

        Looking back in the strace history, there are other modules which it
