Thanks, I did not know about this convention and I did not think of
running apt-cache policy inside my i386 chroot.
So, coming back to the original problem: Maybe you can find out why the
post-installation script fails. You can simply edit the script
/var/lib/dpkg/info/postfix.postinst and insert
as the second line.
Then you can run "dpkg-reconfigure postfix" again and the script will
echo every executed command to STDOUT. Maybe that will give you a clue
where and why it hangs.
