Description of problem:
postfix-2.1.5-2.4.FC3 doesn't include /etc/postfix/aliases. However
Postfix will not start, if the file isn't present. Previous Postfix

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade Core 2 to Core 3 with postfix installed and no changes to
/etc/postfix/aliases. Just installing Postfix should show the problem,
2. Say /sbin/service postfix start
3. It will fail
4. Looking at /var/log/maillog shows, that the reason is, that it
can't find /etc/postfix/aliases
