This isn't the real problem.

Install from source or create a package have the same problem: break
distro security updates, for postfix this isn't so dangerous because
security patches aren't usual.
If you compile a software, or install not official packages, will have
a tough job to be free of vulnerabilities (public announcements occur
after the distro updates).
