If you want funny options in your postfix, you need to build it via  
the port directly.  Go to /usr/ports/mail/postfix and type "make  
confg" and select the options you want, then type "make" to build it,  
and "make install" to install it.  You will probably need to  
pkg_delete the current one.

Also, you can convince portupgrade utility to do the tricky bits for  
you after the make config step.
