--As for the rest, it is mine.

I picked the option to install postfix in the base.  It works the same as 
postfix out of the base.  Only one real difference that I've noted: Instead 
of being in '/usr/local/sbin/' it's in '/usr/sbin/'.  There are quite a few 
other ports I've noticed that see postfix and assume it's in /usr/local/*, 
so this can be annoying as you are installing other things.  On the other 
hand, every time I've run into it, it's just been a config option or so 
that needed changing.  You just have to be on the lookout for it: lots of 
things send the occasional email, or can.
