If you mean the options specified to configure when the software was
initially configured, the answer is No. Some options are evident in
certain settings in Defaults.py, but --with-mail-gid isn't one of them.

Did you configure and make Mailman? If so, the configure command line
should be available in config.log in the directory you configured in.

If this is a package, be aware that various packagers use various
tricks to enable setting of the expected mail group at run time.
