Then look into the config.status file.

chown root ~vpopmail/bin/vchkpw
chmod u+s ~vpopmail/bin/vchkpw

However, I'd only suggest to do this if you have your domains managed
under different user id's (in fact, then you'll _need_ these
modifications); if you're going with all domains under the vpopmail id,
you'll go better with ~vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp.

See the ChangeLog (this option appeared in 4.10.12):

   - added new configure option --enable-qmail-ext. This
     was the default in old installations. Now there is
     an option to turn it off.  
     --enable-qmail-ext=y (default) will deliver mail
     --enable-qmail-ext=n will NOT deliver mail for
      only deliver it to [EMAIL PROTECTED]
