Thanks for your report, Jerry.  You are correct that FreeBSD is the main
development platform for Postfix.  It seems that pointyhat's amd64
machine throws an error during the install phase.  Pav noticed this and
marked the port BROKEN; however, neither I nor a few others I've
enlisted can reproduce the error.  Would you mind removing the
conditional that marks this port BROKEN, try to build/install in your
amd64 environment, and report the results? 

Pav, if nobody else can reproduce the error seen on pointyhat, can
portmgr look into whether there is something quirky with the amd64
pointyhat machine?
