...installing using the source code of whatever version the port is 
configured for and with whatever patches the port maintainer decided to 
include. This as opposed to installing the version -you- want with the 
options that -you- want to use. For some software, the port (and pkg) can 
lag significantly behind the current released version (as it happens, the 
current pkg is .25 and the current port is .26 from about 4 days ago but 
there were some updates to that from less that 24 hours ago).

I'll stick with my preference of installing mailman from it's original code 
tarball and not from a port; it's served me well for years.
