No, if you did 'make install' in /usr/pkgsrc/mail/postfix that should have
taken care of it.

What I did was I set "sendmail=NO" in /etc/rc.conf and put
/usr/pkg/etc/rc.d/postfix.sh in /etc/rc.local. I think that the
postfix.sh file was put there by the install script in the pkg tree. If
not, you just have to call 'poshfix start' or something simple like that.
