Sorry for replying to myself, but I think I found the solution.

I created one new check_mailq file for each queue and edited the open
line (line 72 on my system) and added the argument after the
"utils::PATH_TO_MAILQ" so that it looks like

if (! open (MAILQ, "$utils::PATH_TO_MAILQ
-OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqueue.in | " ) ) {

(should be on one line)
