But I use FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE-p15 with native compiler.
Really nobody has this problem on freebsd?

And the main - Why I can't start dovecot without SSL :)
Why I see in log "pop3-login: BUG: SSL initialization parameters not given while they should have been"
even if I have "ssl_disable = yes" in dovecot.conf
1.0b3 works fine.
This problem is main for me
because I don't want to use SSL.
