Update postfix to version 2.6.4

Fixes from HISTORY:

   Bugfix: don't panic when an unexpected smtpd access map is
   specified. File: smtpd/smtpd_check.c.


   Workaround: NS record lookups for certain domains always
   fail, while other queries for those domains always succeed
   (and even return replies with NS records as additional

   This inconsistency in DNS lookup results would allow spammers
   to circumvent the Postfix check_{client,helo,sender,etc}_ns_access
   restrictions, because those restrictions have effect only
   for NS records that can be looked up in the DNS.

   To address this inconsistency, check_{client,etc}_ns_access
   now require that a known-in-DNS domain name (or parent
   thereof) always resolves to at least one name server IP

   For consistency, check_{client,etc}_mx_access now require
   that a known-in-DNS domain name always resolves to at least
   one mail server IP address.

   These measures merely raise the difficulty level for spammers.
   The IP address information thus obtained is not necessarily
   "correct".  There is little to stop an uncooperative DNS
   server from lying, especially when the owner of the domain
   has no desire to receive email.  File: smtpd/smtpd_check.c.

   Problem reported by MXTools.com.
