First, I got:

Compiling /var/local/mailman/Mailman/versions.py ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bin/update", line 47, in ?
    from Mailman import MailList
  File "/var/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 49, in ?
    from Mailman.Archiver import Archiver

    from email.Charset import Charset
ImportError: No module named Charset
make: *** [update] Error 1

Then I  realized that there  was an email-0.97 package  in the tree,  and it
worked much better after that :-)

The INSTALL  doc still mention email-0.96,  and say that python-2.2  is good
enough, which isn't  true anymore (actually even python-cvs  doesn't seem to
have this yet). It probably needs to be updated.
