[Mailman-Users] Failure to find group name

Hi all,

I've seen this error mentioned in the archives, but no answers for 
dealing with it:

      Failure to find group name nobody.  Try adding this group
      to your system, or re-run configure, providing an
      existing group name with the command line option --with-cgi-gid.

This is on FreeBSD 5.2.1, Python 2.3.4, Apache 2.0.49, and Mailman 

I have two different FreeBSD 4.9 servers with Python 2.3.4, Apache 
1.3.27, and Mailman 2.1.3 -- the problem doesn't occur there.

If it matters, when I compiled Mailman on the new server, I used 
--with-cgi-gid=65534 -- so the software was able to determine that 
65534 is 'nobody' at that point.

Any thoughts?
