(Not quite answering your question, but:) Often I see people asking
this question while they are unaware that there exists a perfectly
integrated Debian package just with the software they are trying to
install -- as in this case: there *is* a ready-made postfix Debian
So before installing a program from sources, you should try:
$ apt-cache search <program name>
$ apt-cache show <program name>
Never mind if you already knew that.
