SOGo on OpenBSD/macppc

Thanks to sebastia@, I learned that SOGo was not build on OpenBSD/macppc (4.9) because GNUstep wasn’t:

# vi /usr/ports/x11/gnustep/gnustep.port.mk
ONLY_FOR_ARCHS = i386 amd64 macppc
# cd /usr/ports/www/sogo
# make install

Not even does it compile well but it also runs correctly ; at least during the few testings I did.

It is a set of access tools to your Mail, Calendar and Address book. It provides Webmail, a CalDAV and a CardDAV services. It also enables integration with native clients, like Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail.

The difference with M$ Exchange is that it is Open Source software. The difference with Zafara or Zimbra is that it doesn’t come with its own backend ; it sits on top of some already running SMTP and IMAP servers.
