[Mailman-Users] Mailman in chrooted OpenBSD

I need help setting up mailman in a chrooted OpenBSD environment.  I've
copied the /usr/local/lib/mailman and /var/spool/mailman directories to
/var/www/mailman, as well as the modules it needed, but now I'm getting an
error that says:

Mailman CGI error!!! The Mailman CGI wrapper encountered
a fatal error. This entry is being stored in your syslog:
Failure to find group name for GID 67. Mailman
expected the CGI wrapper to be executed as group
"www", but the system's web server executed the
wrapper as GID 67 for which the name could not be
found.  Try adding GID 67 to your system as "www",
or tweak your web server to run the wrapper as group

I believe that a chrooted apache drops the user name and just holds onto the
user id.  Can anyone help me out with this?  I really need this installed
and kinda need to keep the chroot.  If I need to start over with a fresh
installation of mailman, that's not a problem.  Any and all help would be
GREATLY appreciated!
