The Makefile of the mailman port defines the MAIL_GID variable with += operator.
If this variable is defined in /etc/make.conf, this will cause two gids 
(group names) to be defined as the variable and likely to cause 
installation failure..

Simply use ?= instead of += operator to define the MAIL_GID variable.
