It is at  smtpserver.conf file.  The default file says essentially:

# The policy database:  (NOTE: See  'makedb'  for its default suffixes!)
PARAM  policydb        $DBTYPE  $MAILVAR/db/smtp-policy

The $MAILVAR  is read from   zmailer.conf  (where that is in your system),
and if you have there a string:


that would explain at least part of the problem..  The variable substitution
engine does not handle double-indirections.

Btw: zmailer.org  runs on Amd-X2 (x86-64) and F12, so all things being equal,
     I should be able to reproduce your problem..
