postfix-current doesn't need this yet because there is no IPv6+TLS
patch for that snapshot release of Postfix.  However, it should be
needed in the future.  I think it's worthwhile to forward the patches
relevant to the main Postfix sources to Wietse Venema for any future
releases.  I'm happy to do this, since I'm heavily invested in a solid
Postfix package; however, there are a few things could you clarify
for me:

  (1) Could you tell me why exactly <resolv.h> needs <nameser8_compat.h>
      on MacOS X?  What symbols are needed within <nameser8_compat.h>
      that are used within <resolv.h>?

  (2) Is there an <arpa/nameser8_compat.h> on MacOS X that should be
      included instead of <nameser8_compat.h>?  MacOS X attempts to
      look BSDish, but <nameser8_compat.h> seems out of place.
