Bug#640012: postfix: FTBFS: kFreeBSD check hardcodes kernel version 5,6,7, current is 8 + no NIS on !linux

Package: src:postfix
Version: 2.8.4-1
Severity: serious
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org,debian-hurd@lists.debian.org
Tags: sid wheezy
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)


Your package failed to build on the kfreebsd and hurd buildds. For
kFreeBSD makedefs hardcodes kFreeBSD kernel Versions up to 7 while
current is 8. Patch:

 		# Postfix no longer needs DB 1.85 compatibility
 		if [ -f /usr/include/db.h ]

Also there's no NIS on kfreebsd and hurd (See #545970). I tried to
disable NIS in postfix with the following patch which results in a
building postfix at least:
