NetBSD 3.0 NetBSD 3.0 (GENERIC) #0: Mon Dec 19 01:04:02 UTC 2005 i386
mailman does not work with postfix; regardless of MAILMAN_MAILGROUP set in Makefile (for postfix: nobody, see comment), mailman gets handed the wrong GID from postfix:

blackjack-a# /usr/pkg/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post
Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail
wrapper script to be executed as group "nobody", but
the system's mail server executed the mail script as
group "wheel".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the
script as group "nobody", or re-run configure, 
providing the command line option `--with-mail-gid=wheel'.
build mailman, configure it, create mailing list, try to post to it, watch maillog
