[Mailman-Users] Installing Mailman on a Virtual Host

  I went ahead and made the changes to my configure and configure.in files.
 WHen I run configure, I get through the checks for the new mailman UID and
GID, but it stops at the next step which is where it checks the directory
permisiions.    The error I get says:

  File "conftest.py", line 4, in ?
NameError: vuser
cat: conftest.out: No such file or directory
configure: error:
***** Installation directory /usr/home/<mylogin>/usr/home/mailman is not
configured properly!

But when I check the directory, the permissions are set just as they are
supposed to be according to the install (d rwx rws r-x, right?).  

What is the NameError?   Did I miss someplace else where I was supposed to
change the GID?
