Yes.  Did this.  Recompiled (after specifically deleteting
/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper just in case) and make install did its

I used the following command line to kind of troubleshoot by adding some
bogus GIDs (note gid 1 [daemon] is not there):
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mailman --with-mail-gid='8 9 100'

Then a simple:
make install

And yet /var/log/mail.err says:
Aug 13 00:54:35 shaft Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script. WANTED
gid 8, GOT gid 1.  (Reconfigure to take 1?)

SO what the HELL is giving sendmail gid 1?!?

I figure --with-mail-gid is the right thing and couldn't possibly be
broken because it's such a vital part of installation.  So what gives?

Any ideas?
