I see that postfix-policyd is missing but I can't agree for dovecot and
rsync. Seems to be a quite recent upload for dovecot at least because
when I first read your mail and looked I did see the missing dovecot.
I am willing to prepare a postfix-plicyd stable rebuild, if it isn't
appearing on the security server within the next some hours.

That's rather something you'll have to ask the DSA and/or security team
and not on a porter's list. :)

Building on your host system might give you a bit more of worries at
times, especially if you have installed backports or unofficial
packages. I sugguest to build in a clean chroot, like with cowbuilder
(cowdancer package) or pbuilder.
