You could try starting it with debug turned on:

Code:
/etc/init.d/postfix -d start

Well, it is giving information, actually.

See what you get when you run this:

Code:
/usr/sbin/postfix check

  Title                     Upgrading to postfix-2.9
  Author                    Eray Aslan <eras@gentoo.org>
  Posted                    2012-07-23
  Revision                  1

Daemons for >=mail-mta/postfix-2.9 are installed under
/usr/libexec/postfix.  Please do not forget to adjust your main.cf by
running etc-update/dispatch-conf or similar and accepting the new
daemon_directory setting.  Otherwise, postfix will not be able to find
the binaries it is looking for


2014, and still not "fixed" change that in main.cf?

It has been fixed in main.cf...you have to use etc-update or dispatch-conf to install the new configuration files. Just be aware, if you do install the latest though, it will overwrite you current main.cf.
