postfix rpm misses /var/spool/postfix/etc directory

Description of problem:
The postfix RPM is missing the /var/spool/postfix/etc directory.
As a result of this, the /etc/resolv.conf files copied into
/var/spool/postfix/etc at startup time ends up as
/var/spool/postfix/etc (file) instead of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql postfix | grep var/spool/postfix/etc
Actual Results: nothing
Expected Results: Should display /var/spool/postfix/etc
Postfix in chroot environment is probably not able to resolve hostnames.
Well, the startup script changes really suck. You might want to learn
about changes in the configuration file (e.g. the queue_directory
setting), the postconf command and basically apply the attached patch.
The same bug pretty sure applies to Fedora.
Created attachment 100037 [details]
patch to /etc/init.d/postfix to get queue_directory from configuration
This has already been resolved, but perhaps not in the manner you
prefer. Just so you understand we are no longer putting postfix in a
chroot jail. Wieste is no longer recommending chroot jails for typical
installations, the security benefits are dwarfed by the configuration
and maintenance problems especially as more postfix installations take
advantage of other system services such as SASL, LDAP, pam, etc.
