Description NIIMI Satoshi 2006-01-12 19:40:05 UTC
Running "${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d/postfix.sh restart" may produce an error

postfix/postfix-script: fatal: the Postfix mail system is already running

if "postfix stop" takes some time.  It is because the postfix(8)
command just sends a signal to the master(8) daemon and does not wait
the process to be stopped.

The PID file should be checked to restart the daemon reliably.

I approve, with one minor change.

the postfix_procname variable default should use %%PREFIX%% rather  
than /usr/local directly.
