I have now cross posted this question to freebsd-ports. I originally
posted the question to security as I have seen similar questions in
the freebsd-security archive that have been answered by the
maintainer of mpd. I propose that we now end this thread as three
people exchanging blows is not productive and only serves to
inflame tempers.

Kind regards
