	Random suggestions on this:

	    Add 'CPPFLAGS+=-DLOG_PPP=LOG_DAEMON' to /etc/mk.conf

	    Sounds useful enough to include in a PR?

	excluding postfix (or anything else) in a build:
	    It would be nice to fix this in a generic way - any
	    volunteers? One idea would be to have a SUBDIR_EXCLUDE
	    variable. If set, would run through SUBDIR
	    and remove anything in SUBDIR_EXCLUDE. You would only pay
	    the extra processing cost if SUBDIR_EXCLUDE were set, but
	    it would make it easier to produce 'cut down' builds.
