postfix chrooting.

I have a FreeBSD 5.3-BETA3 #0 setup. Installed Bind9
and chrooted it. It's running perfectly. Now I'm
trying to chroot postfix-2.1.4,1 MTA. I googled the
mailing list and other sites, the only reference I
found mentioning the source code containing a
directory examples/chroot-setup/FREEBSD3 that file

umask 022
mkdir /var/spool/postfix/etc
chmod 755 /var/spool/postfix/etc
cd /etc ; cp host.conf localtime services resolv.conf

The above looks like it's putting the needed files by
postfix in the "to-be-chrooted" location.

My question is, how to proceed after that ? What do I
have to do to create the chroot environment. And what
option I should enclude in the to make postfix
start chrooted.

Thanks in advance.
