[Bug 543627] [NEW] mailman command does not initialize directory structure on first run

Public bug reported:

Contrary to "src/mailman/docs/START.txt" which says

  Run the ``bin/mailman info`` command to see which configuration file Mailman
  will use, and where it will put its database file.  The first time you run
  this, Mailman will also create any necessary run-time directories and log
  files.

neither the mailman command alone nor running it with option "info"
creates the initial directory structure.

If you go with the default settings in mailman.cfg you probably won't
notice because you are within the correct directory structure. But if
you set "var_dir: /opt/mailman" in e.g. /etc/mailman.cfg things break.

I believe fixing this would also fix ticket #543620.
