This might be a pkgsrc issue more than anything, but I'm getting the
following error now:

Shouldn't it be okay with me already having the users?  When I deleted
them I think it was breaking on permissions in /var/spool/postfix.
When I moved that out of the way it complained that the directory
didn't exist!

I thought replacing the base postfix was pretty common.  Am I doing
something obviously wrong?
