Well, that is unfortunate.  I hope your health improves.

bind & ntp are "prior art" from 4.4BSD, and have no "competing"
product in the base system.

sendmail's installation into /etc was "prior art" from 4.4BSD, but the
configuration installation is gated on MKSENDMAIL in etc/Makefile and
is actually installed by gnu/usr.sbin/sendmail/cf/cf/Makefile.

postfix's minimal absolute configuration is installed by
gnu/usr.sbin/postfix/postfix-etc/Makefile (from gnu/dist/postfix),
and the examples are installed into /usr/share/examples/postfix.
