I'm pretty sure there are RPMs that handle this situation already. How
do they do it?

I'm not sure if this would be considered an improvement. Parsing /etc/passwd
every time a vpopmail binary is invoked could be expensive on some systems.
I'm looking at adding a configuration file to vpopmail for the 5.5 branch that
will contain all the stuff that usually you have to set at configure time. The
UID/GID would be contained here as well, but that's not currently available.
Just an OT about the config: It will be compiled so as to be very quick to load.
