 This still does not change the fact that installing the base system gives me 
 the newaliases command of sendmail when running it without stating the full 
 path. It is ok if the NO_SENDMAIL=yes method works but...

 How is a user supposed to know this? When installing postfix, printing this 
 message would be convenient.
