I hate to disappoint anyone following this thread, but I think I'm 
going to drop the issue for now and re-migrate back to CentOS.  I've 
found a working replacement for Postgrey in using sqlgrey 
(http://sqlgrey.sourceforge.net/) that appears to be working quite well 
(doesn't use db4).  I'll continue to follow the issue with earnest, 
hopefully someone else will be able to offer some final insight.  
Perhaps I'll take the cause back up on a test system.
