[patch] remove postfix dependency

The first patch removes postfix as build and run dependency so users are free to choose the postfix version without being afraid it will be replaced during the next pkg upgrade.
I found no reason to handle postfix different the sendmail, opensmtpd and exim.

The second patch corrects pkg-install, else it will create a "-g" and mailman directory in the portsdir.

$ make package
$ pkg install work/pkg/mailman-2.1.20_2.txz
$ ls -1
-g  <== this
mailman <== and this directory is created by installing the port

New revision: 409836
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/409836

  Fix pkg-install "install -d" invocation.

  It used to use GNU-install-isms (options after arguments) that don't
  work with BSD install and caused two spurious directories to be created,
  one named -g, the other usually named "mailman" (or whichever group name
  was configured).  Bumps PORTREVISION.

I believe after the recent mail/postfix* port upgrades, the "remove postfix dependency" should no longer matter. I think that binary packages should do the right thing; for a compromise, I would however accept an invisible build option that changes the Postfix dependency to some other, or an option change to make no MTA integration adjustments.
