mail/mailman package bug?


I get this error while installing mail/mailman from pkgsrc-2009Q2 (and -current) on both NetBSD/i386 4.0.1 and NetBSD/amd64 5.0_STABLE:

=> Running POST-INSTALL script actions
mailman-2.1.12: copying /usr/pkg/share/examples/mailman/mailman.conf to /usr/pkg/etc/httpd/mailman.conf mailman-2.1.12: copying /usr/pkg/lib/mailman/Mailman/ to /usr/pkg/lib/mailman/Mailman/ = = = ========================================================================
The following files should be created for mailman-2.1.12:

        /etc/rc.d/mailman (m=0755)

Traceback (most recent call last):

    MAILMAN_GID = grp.getgrnam(MAILMAN_GROUP)[2]
KeyError: 'getgrnam(): name not found: '
=> Please note the following:

= = = ========================================================================

I guess it's a consequence of that the mailman UID doesn't get installed during "make install" (earlier from the installation output):

=> Running PRE-INSTALL script actions
mailman-2.1.12: Creating group ``mailman''
mailman-2.1.12: Creating user ``mailman''
useradd: Warning: home directory `/nonexistent' doesn't exist, and -m was not specified

Is there someone else that has seen this problem? I have a weak memory of some other package failing just like this with a /nonexistent homedir creation, but googling around make me think that it pre-dates pkgsrc-2007Qx).
