.../mailman/bin called paths.py, which explicitly imports Korean and 
Here's the error message:

Compiling /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/versions.py ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "bin/update", line 46, in ?
import paths
File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/paths.py", line 60, in ?
import korean
ImportError: No module named korean
make: *** [update] 1 ????
