The cgi-gid needs to be the gid of the web server (the process is
probably httpd and the group is probably apache).

The mail-gid needs to be the gid of your MTA (e.g. sendmail, postfix,
exim, the group is probably mail).

How do find out what groups an process executes under? Do this:

# ps -eo "%a %G"

Read this:

Then rerun configure using the cgi and mail gid's you discovered by
running ps. Note, you can specify the group name to the configure
parameters, it does not have to numeric.
