To me either. I ran into a problem a while back with Postfix, and that's the same answer they gave me. It turned out to be a problem with SPF. Once I deselected that, postfix compiled fine.
It might be wise to use "portupgrade -rR" or something similar to update PostFix, or, if this isn't a production box, uninstall and reinstall the port (though that seems too "Microsoftie" to me....)
