I was able to resolve this without the assistance of the list and am
embarrassed to admit that somehow, despite setting many compile-type
configuration options with vpopmail, I missed the "--enable-passwd=y"
directive to the configure script.  I'm a tad embarrassed, but perhaps
having this in the archives will help someone else resolve their issues.
(Ironically, I managed to migrate all my system accounts over to vpopmail
before figuring out what the problem was.)

Many thanks!
