Barry, the change seems okay, but there may be a more fundamental, 
simpler problem we haven't addressed -- the user may not be aware of how 
critically important it is to run bin/check_perms first thing before 
even starting mailmanctl!

Maybe we can just put a message at the end of make install that says in 
BIG CAPITAL LETTERS to definitely run bin/check_perms as root.
