bad idea.  You should follow www.lifewithqmail.org and then read vpopmail's 
INSTALL file.  Anywho, you've already shot yourself in the foot, so let's see 
if we can't bandage your wound.

vpopmail is a set of tools that helps with creating and administering virtual 
domains with qmail.  upgrading to a newer version simply upgrades the tools

if you still have your old vpopmail source around (you DO still have your old 
sources around, right?) then take a look at config.status to see what you ran 
for your ./configure.  Also, this points out another problem with using 
installation tools and 'toasters' *shudder* in that you end up not knowing 
what you have on your system.

the new version of vpopmail will yell at you if you try to use configuration 
options that have been obsoleted, and will point you in the direction of the 
new versions of those configuration options.

./configure && make && make install

however, that might not work for you, if say.. you're using mysql, etc.  Of 
course, you should know how your system is set up, so that should be 
obvious :)
