Dear Mailman'ers

Is there any way I can extract the config variables

--with-mail-gid and

from my setup. anything, nums or strings...

I lost my old building script for 2.1.5

2.1.5 worked pretty much fine, and i didn't have to rebuild it to get the 
mail/web gids right so this time round I just picked the options I thought I 
picked last time.

postfix runs as 'postfix'
apache2 runs as 'apache2' so this time I ran

./configure --with-cgi-gid=apache2

but I get
command failed: /usr/.../postalias /usr/local/mailman/data/aliases (status: 1, 
Not owner)

After trying to add my first virtual list and getting..... my data dir 
subsequently like this........neither db file were (re)generated

mailman at skyflash:~/data >ls -la
total 94
drwxrwsr-x   2 mailman  mailman      512 Jun 19 15:54 .

-rw-r--r--   1 mailman  mailman    14110 Jun 19 15:03 sitelist.cfg
-rw-rw----   1 apache2  mailman     1275 Jun 19 15:54 virtual-mailman

Any insight to the above appreciated

Regarding the item in the FAQ about adding apache to the postfix group, I 
disregarded this because it all worked in 2.1.5 without this addition...
