I want to be able to send automated text messages to my cell phone from my Gentoo system. I would prefer to use just ssmtp, but if not Postfix would be my second choice. How would I go about pushing out the messages as text messages?

Try here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SMS_gateways

Or google "email to sms gateway".

In other words, just send email to the email address given to you by your cellular provider for sending SMS messages to your phone from email.
