I submmitted following bug report.

Bug 255809 mail/postfix35: Flavorize

Attatched patch flavorizes mail/postfix35 and add ldap_sasl and sasl
flovors which correspond to mail/postfix-ldap-sasl and mail/postfix-sasl.

In this case poudriere has nothing to do with the problem. Whatever
tool you use you can't build slave port of mail/postfix35 because
there isn't such one.
