Darwin gizmobook.exa 6.6 Darwin Kernel Version 6.6: Thu May  1 21:48:54 PDT 2003; root:xnu/xnu-344.34.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC  Power Macintosh powerpc
After manually creating users and groups for postfix (see pkg/16628), it fails to run the post-install script correctly.  The problem seems to be that the script does not include /usr/pkg/bin and /usr/pkg/sbin in its PATH.

===> Running postfix's post-install script
/usr/pkg/share/examples/postfix/post-install: Error: no postconf command found.
Re-run this command as /usr/pkg/share/examples/postfix/post-install command_dire

Also note that 'make install' tries to run /usr/pkg/share/examples/postfix/post-instal and it should actually be running /usr/pkg/etc/postfix/post-install.  The latter script will work correctly once you add /usr/pkg/bin and /usr/pkg/sbin to the PATH in post-install.

Build mail/postfix on MacOS X 10.2.6 (aka Darwin 6.6) using the 20030412 Darwin bootstrap kit.
Have 'make install' add /usr/pkg/bin and /usr/pkg/sbin to /usr/pkg/etc/postfix/post-install and run that instead of the current behavior.
