postfix-2.6.5 on freebsd 8.0-release

Upon the installation (``pkg_add -r'') of postfix, I was asked, as
usual, to disable some daily routines.

However, on Freebsd 8.0 release, ``/etc/periodic.conf'' does not
exist. I believe that the contents of ``/etc/periodic/daily'' are
relevant here.

What is the preferred method of performing these actions now?

Thank you for your time.
