[Pkg-dspam-misc] Bug#385760: The dspam daemon should NOT be run by user dspam or default port needs to move

in the default configuration of dspam, if daemon gets enabled, the
daemon wants to listen on tcp port 24. Starting dspam per default as
user dspam then will just not work. Linux prevents direct “reserved
port” assignments by any process other than system root.

So you either let it run by root or fix the default port for this

Interim-Solution: fix the init-script to blow up if user tries this.
