I just saw the same thing after upgrading my Mac Mini G4 from 4.0 to
4.4-current and upgrading Postfix to 2.6.20080726. I have the sasl2
flavor installed, so perhaps it's a problem with that, as mentioned
later in this thread?

At your suggestion, I changed sendmail_flags to "NO" in /etc/
rc.conf.local and simply added a /usr/local/sbin/postfix start to/etc/
rc.local . All working fine now...
