I have it running and it works, load is down and free mem up, but not
certain if that is just because I've restarted spamd a few times. I'm
getting some weird error messages has anyone else seen this?

I had to modify the make file

Then run the install manually
/usr/local/bin/python2.5 setup.py install
And cp readyexec /usr/local/bin

Finally I kicked it off with
/usr/local/bin/sudo -u nobody readyexecd.py /tmp/pyzor1 pyzor.client.run &

pyzor_path /usr/local/bin/readyexec
pyzor_options /tmp/pyzor1

I'm getting pyzor hits in the logs so all appears to be working, but the
following are occasionally appearing on the terminal I started it from.
FreeBSD 6.2 by the way.
