Yes, but you didn't configure your ZMailer with  --with-tcp-wrappers
parameter ?   If you did, was it able to find <tcpd.h> file ?
How about -lwrap ?

As you may guess, per default the tcp-wrappers code IS NOT added to
the system.

In 3.* series the 'mailq' protocol will be modified so that nobody
gets in to do queries/administer without proper per-user authenticator.
