Just skip that whole bit and let it install with setgid.  It is less
painful to do so.  Even though the setgid bit is unnecessary in the
BSD file system, it is mostly harmless to be there.  The only side
effect is that if you have nightly scripts that scan for setuid/setgid
file changes, these get picked up sometimes.

Also, I think that some other scripts in Mailman now check for setgid
and complain and they are not affected by the above option to make.

Anyhow, if you're using FreeBSD, just go ahead and use the Mailman
port -- that's what I do ;-)
