Yes, I know, my point is that we typically take great precautions to not 
hardcode path assumptions into default packages, which is not the case here 
(even though the NetBSD majority gets out lucky here). I'm personally only 
concerned about Solaris, which of course doesn't come with Postfix/Lynx. I'm 
fine changing the config file, 

Correct me if I'm wrong but there is currenty no mechanism to check built-in 
options for packages like Postfix or Lynx.

I'd tend to disable rather than pull in Lynx as dependency.
