I am positive this in not necessary, but I can't remember why. Leaving open for additional research.

Well, you'll have been pretty nice to me on this one, but I was conditionally wrong. If you have not installed a MTA, then the /var/mail directory has not likely been changed to group writeable. Failing this configure test causes make install to look for the mail group (and fails if not found). Instructions modified to cover this case.
