The monolithic /usr/sbin/sysinstall binary has postfix-2.2 hardcoded into it rather than postfix-2.3 in the code dealing with selecting and installing a default MTA (Configure -> Networking -> Mail -> Postfix).

Since the packages have 2.3, it says that 2.2 is not found in the INDEX.
Run sysinstall and select: Configure -> Networking -> Mail -> Postfix
Change the 2.2 to 2.3 in the config.c file in the sysinstall source.

Patch attached with submission follows:

<     ret = package_add("postfix-2.2");
>     ret = package_add("postfix-2.3");
