Postfix fails to install giving the following error message:

mv: cannot resolve XXX/pkgsrc/mail/postfix/work/postfix-2.5.1/junk: XXX/pkgsrc/mail/usr
./postfix-install: Error: your mv command has trouble renaming symlinks.
If you run Linux, upgrade to GNU fileutils-4.0 or better,
or choose a tempdir that is in the same file system as /usr/pkg/bin/newaliases.
If you run FreeBSD, upgrade to version 5 or better.

cd mail/postfix; make install

Assign to maintainer.
Maybe not a problem with "mv" but a problem with target directory location?

 It's a problem only if pkgsrc is on a different filesystem than $LOCALBASE.
