You problem is that the mail-gid is compiled into a C program which is
then installed as $prefix/mail/wrapper.
Normal advice is to rerun the Mailman ./configure with the
--with-mail-gid= option set to the new value and then re-run make
install as if doing a normal Mailman upgrade. It is a good idea to do a
backup and shutdown you MTA and Mailman qrunner etc while the upgrade
is being done.
If you are a confident hacker you could just try:
1. rerun the Mailman ./configure with the --with-mail-gid= option set
to the new value
2. run make in just the Mailman $build/src directory
3. replace $prefix/mail/wrapper with the $build/src/wrapper file just
generated by step (2)
Same caveats about backup and shutdowns apply.
