> A better solution would be of course to ask the user during installation of the base system or not overwriting newaliases when postfix is installed. Requiring a full path specification of newaliases and putting it in different locations is also a possible solution.
The latter is what the ports system already does when installing
postfix. Unless you deliberately configured your system otherwise,
the postfix version of newaliases will go into /usr/local/bin/newaliases.
