Have you created the vpopmail user and vchkpw group? If not you must.

Yes, I will create they when installing the package in my destination host. This is the why I need to get these values into the package when
building. The build host isn't my dest host.


That is a tough nut to crack. IIRC, vpopmail default uid/gid conflicts with postfix on Redhat distros.

What is the problem? Just create the group and user with different values. It doesn't matter what the number is, it just has to exist when your run ./configure.

Oh, the vpopmail uid and gid is not hardcoded into the binaries?

The uid and gid are hard coded into the bianaries by ./configure.

I cannot then use them on another host where they are different then.


No.

Well, that was the whole point of OP's post and why I said it was a tough nut to crack. The OP wants to build a package that will be used on other hosts...


Then use the same numbers for the uid and gid values for all qmail and vpopmail users on all systems.

Ah, but what can I do if those systems are not mine? I have been planning on make a package for Centos users and to have it included on one of the Centos repositories.
