freebsd 9.3 error warning: smtputf8_enable is true, but EAI support is not compiled in

if you are getting this error "warning: smtputf8_enable is true, but EAI support is not compiled in" on freebsd 9.3 (maybe freebsd 10) it's a bug in the port config. EASY way to fix it (well best way to fix it) is to compile postfix with EAI support.

# cd /usr/ports/mail/postfix-current/
# make config

Make sure you select EAI from the list

# make install clean
or
# make reinstall clean

  1. In case you don’t want to reinstall everything, just put `smtputf8_enable=no` in main.cf would also work.
