[Mailman-Users] GID

I guess this question has been asked a lot, but I've tried all the
possible solutions I could find in the archive and none of them fixed my
problem. Every time the wrapper gets invoked from sendmail, it returns
this to the maillog:

Sep 13 01:31:36 dell sendmail[24530]: f8CNVaJ24530: from=<***@***>,
size=1636, class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<005d01c13be3$31a49850$0500000a at voyager>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA,
relay=pop3.***.be []
Sep 13 01:31:37 dell sendmail[24531]: f8CNVaJ24530:
to="|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system",
ctladdr=<nip-system-admin@***.***> (8/0), delay=00:00:01,
xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=prog, pri=30977, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

So far, everything is okay. But, the mail never arrived. So I thought,
let's run "/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system" manually:

$ /home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system
Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 1012.  (Reconfigure to
take 1012?)

Now I'm in doubt... I do a "make clean" and then I configure with:
- --with-mail-gid
- --with-cgi-gid


I've reconfigured about 20 times now and I already got it to see "gid
1012" (which is the group of the actual wrapper), but now I'm a bit
affraid to have to start all over again (and I really mean: 'again').

So, what do I do next?

I'm logged in as the mailman user on a Red Hat Linux system with
Sendmail as MTA (shame on me).
