This will allow compilation of vpopmail without root. It will also allow installation as non-root in a destination directory owned by the user. e.g. make DESTDIR=$HOME/vpopmail install Once you do this, it would be trivial writing a .spec file for vpopmail and build rpm as non-root. !DSPAM:4991c70532683868620980!
