Given that you have qmail-src installed, try building qmail from it. As
the qmail-src postinst says:

  To build qmail binary package, you have to run


   WARNING! - The binary packages built by build-qmail are
              dependant on the uid and gid's of the system
              that the package was built on.

              If you are building/installing qmail for the
              first time, I highly recommend you check your
              /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, & /etc/group files
              and remove ANY existing qmail uid or gid's and
              re-install qmail-src.  If you choose not to,
              it may not work!
