>Description:
reinstalling the majordomo package changes the ~/lists dir to have 
group write set, which when used with sendmail which sendmail and cause problems when trying to finally deliver to a list, e.g.:

  ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
:include:/home/majordom/lists/agt-staff
    (expanded from: <agt-staff-list@mail.pbspro.com>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
550 5.2.4 :include:/home/majordom/lists/agt-staff... Cannot open /home/majordom/lists/agt-staff: Group writable directory
Message delivered to mailing list <agt-staff-list@mail.pbspro.com>

There may be some reason why the permissions are so permissive, but if there is not, 755 seems like a better value.

Also, mail/majordomo conflicts with net/bounce since they both install
/usr/pkg/bin/bounce and /usr/pkg/man/man1/bounce.1
>How-To-Repeat:
reinstall majordomo package when using sendmail.
>Fix:
change INSTALL to set more restrictive directory perms, or add a target to Makefile postinstall section.
