I am working on moving away from the Apple provided and customized Postfix to "real" Postfix built from sources. I've successfully built Postfix but not yet tested. To avoid having it overwritten by Apple updates to Postfix, I'm planning to install in /usr/local/ (e.g. /usr/local/etc/postfix, /usr/local/sbin, and /usr/local/libexec/postfix).Have you had a look at http://diymacserver.com/ ?

Go to the Documentation page.
It shows you how to install Postifx (and Dovecot, etc) independently of Apple's installation. Following this you can run Apple updates without fear of your Postfix settings being messed up.
It's been absolutely essential for me.
