Yes, most likely postfix is trying to install dovecot2. I still don't 
know what command are you issuing when you get this error.

There are several scenarios, do you have a running mail server with 
postfix/dovecot? If yes changing to dovecot2 will involve some 
configuration changes as things have changed in dovecot2. You can switch 
the config setting back to dovecot with "make config" in 
/usr/ports/mail/postfix if you don't want to move to dovecot2 yet.
