Sounds reasonable.

long time ago I shaped a patch for postfix-2.10 to support staging,
if required I can create a new patch for 2.11.


Stage support can be added easily with the install_root parameter.

+	${MKDIR} ${STAGEDIR}/etc/rc.d
-	@cd ${WRKSRC} && ${SH} postfix-install -non-interactive install_root=/ tempdir=/tmp \
+	@(cd ${WRKSRC} && ${SH} postfix-install -non-interactive install_root=${STAGEDIR}/ tempdir=/tmp \
