maybe? I think Google is trying to 'encourage' list operators to use SPF and DKIM. It's worth noting that at least initially, google groups list mail would generate the same warning (I haven't checked recently, so they may have fixed that).

I believe that if MacPorts set up SPF record(s) and/or DKIM, it would stop showing up flagged by google - but I wasn't able to find a specific reference that verifies that.
