Compiling vpopmail with 'passwd' support should do exactly this.
I haven't tested so far, but vchkpw authenticating against
'/etc/passwd' (system user == local user) should set the correct home
directory for qmail-pop3d to fetch the e-mail from.

'Downside' is you'll have to let POP3-daemon run as root to be able to
chuid() to system user, while using only vpopmail-virtual users running
as vpopmail-uid should be enough (assuming all vpopmail-domains running
as vpopmail-user).
