What's wrong with this setup:

- set postfix=YES in /etc/rc.conf
- keep the original /etc/rc.d/postfix
- modify /etc/mailer.conf to use the /usr/pkg/sbin/sendmail
- use this /etc/rc.conf.d/postfix

start_cmd='/usr/pkg/sbin/postfix start'
stop_cmd='/usr/pkg/sbin/postfix stop'
reload_cmd='/usr/pkg/sbin/postfix reload'

Works perfectly for me...
