I'm forwarding this to the ports list.  Obviously someone needs to look 
in to the libspfs port and fix the problem with it.

Ah, I think they are connected. I had a response off list that suggested
makefile. A google on this led me to a suggestion from Wietse that this
hack is unnecessary and "Perhaps you linked Postfix with some
third-party library (SSL? SASL? SQL?) that includes its own
brain-damaged getopt() routine."

Digging a bit deeper, I spotted a suggestion that SPF might be that
third-party library, so recompiled without that option and bingo! It all
works again.
