} Does this mean all MTA's will be removed from the base and some  

     postfix will still be in base and will be the default MTA.

} generic selector be put in place or some optional package, mailMTA's 

     A generic selector has been in place since NetBSD 1.4 (see "man
mailwrapper" and "man mailer.conf").

} (?) be required to add to the base to get an MTA?

     You can easily select other MTAs using pkgsrc.  Most MTA packages
will include sample mailer.conf files to let you easily activate them.
