smtpd in postfix is a private executable, so it has far less precedence than
the one in smtpd. On the other hand, the postfix manpages are crucial to
figure out what the hell a config option really does, so they are needed.

I would suggest all postfix private executable manpages to be moved from
section 8 to section 8postfix or something like that, if man-db will not
mind the change in the filename from .8 to .8postfix...
