That's what I did, I always use my custom m4 and mc files to build the cf, 
sorry, if that wasn't clear.

I finally found the reason for the problem. I had moved over the mail spool 
with a tarball and for a reason I don't remember I tarred spool/mail from var 
and when untarring on the other machine that removed some privileges from 
/var/spool. Sorry for taking your time.
