[nycbug-talk] Kolab Server on *BSD?

Hi all,

I've got someone wanting to fiddle with Kolab, mainly for the contact 
management stuff and the KDE client.  Looking at it, it seems very 
"Linuxy".  Since I just wanted to play with it, I was hoping for binaries, 
but the whole thing is a bit icky in that regard with no official builds 
for *BSD.  It looks like you have to install openpkg, which is itself 
quite a messy little thing.

Anyone have this running?  It's essentially a bunch of common OSS stuff 
wrapped into a big package (OpenLDAP, Postfix, etc.).

Alternately, all my buddy wants is something that will let him do contact 
management and calendering under FreeBSD/KDE, OS-X, Windows and be able to 
sync off to a Palm and a Zaurus.  It sounds like a simple request, but...

Any pointers in this area are welcome.
