As root, /usr/sbin is in the default path before /usr/pkg/sbin, which is where 
things like "postconf" and other need-to-know-about-maps bits live.  Or 
are /usr/sbin/postconf and other utilities wrappers as well?

I suppose I could make them wrappers around shell scripts that look at a 
config file in /etc/postfix to determine if it should 
run /usr/sbin/postfix/<command> or /usr/pkg/sbin/<command> ...
