Attempting to do that gives the following error.

checking for mail wrapper GID...
configure: error:
***** No existing group found for the mail_wrapper program.
***** This is the group that your mail delivery agent runs under, and
***** uses to run filter programs.  You might want to specify an
***** existing group with the --with-mail-gid configure option.
***** Please see your mail agent's documentation, and the INSTALL file
***** for details

command line was
'configure --with-cgi-gid=nogroup --with-mail-gid=-1 --with-cgi-ext=.cgi'
