	Apparently "makedb -p" does lousy job at reacting on policy
	database syntax errors.  Input of type:
		" = _no_relay"
	compiles as "=" as the key, and then it TRIES to find
	a policy key "_no_relay", even complains of it, but still
	stores something (nasty) into the database :-(

	Oh, in that sense it just complains of duplicate key entry,
	but there might exist a situation where I want to have same
	key, and multiple meanings:
		.some.domain	relaycustnet +		(connect time)
		.some.domain	acceptifmx +		(rcpt to)
