I've been testing the current CVS on an OSX box running Postfix, and while
I've had very few problems, yet, one thing I did notice it that the
check_perms script insists on looking at/changing *everything* under
$prefix, rather than just those files needed by the installation.  For me
that meant it wanted to change the permissions on all the source code,
too.  That seems silly.
