This is getting to be a FAQ -- see, for instance,
for the solution. And you really should take the time to _read_ the
INSTALL file :)

Well, as cgi-bin/admin isn't a perl script (in fact there are _no_
perl scripts in Mailman) but a compiled C program, you probably would
be a tad better off running just
... but it most likely won't _do_ anything (except for exit()ing with
a non-zero value).

Perl, as far as I know, isn't able to "compile" scripts permanently --
any perl script is "compiled" at invocation before the actual
execution of the script. And "compiled" is nothing like _real_
compilation -- it is more reminiscent to the byte-compiling that exist
for e.g. Python and Emacs Lisp (I've heard).
