[CentOS] OT: Openwebmail and speedcgi suidperl

Hi, I use Centos 4.4, latest rpm for OWM.
OWM runs fine but i want to enable speedy, so after I enable it I get the error:

Not a perl script at /dev/fd/9 line 1., referer: http://mywebserver/
speedy_backend[3633]: perl_parse error, referer: http://mywebserver/
speedy[3631]: Cannot spawn backend process, referer: http://mywebserver/

my speedy is installed from RPM.

perl, v5.8.5 built for i386-linux-thread-multi
Server version: Apache/2.0.52
Linux Centos 2.6.9-42.EL

# ls -la /usr/bin/speed*
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root root  51865 Dec 25  2005 /usr/bin/speedy
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root root 105324 Dec 25  2005 /usr/bin/speedy_backend

all my openwebmail .pl scripts call #!/usr/bin/suidperl -T and I want
to change them to speedy. However it seems that the speedy rpm is not?
suid compiled.

Can you suggest how to add the suid capability to the RPM? or maybe
another method?
