Yes. And the message is quite clear about the problem.
'vchkpw', the password checking program is not able to change it's GID
to 89 (man setgid *gee, who'd have thought man-pages are useful).
Either you compiled vpopmail with user vpopmail belonging to group with
ID 89 and changed the group id some times later or vchkpw is executed
with a UID not allowed to setgid(89).
First check if vpopmail still belongs to group id 89:
#> id -g vpopmail
if that outputs '89' check is qmail-popup is started as either user 'root'
or user 'vpopmail'.
