Well, "bad command startup" implies something of the sort. getopt
problems *could* cause problems interpreting startup configuration,
but there are many other possibilities.
I'm not really an expert on Postfix, but at least I do have access to
a copy of "The Book of Postfix." Which tells me very little for this
case except that maybe running the post-install script might be
advised. However, that script can edit some config files, including
main.cf, so be very careful if you use it.

Possible, but I wouldn't expect failures until after startup.

This means that main.cf is in the /usr/local/etc/postfix directory,
while the body_checks map file is in /etc/postfix. Is that right?
For testing, you might want to simplify your configuration to see if
the errors go away.
