Did you run configure and `make install'?  Are you running Mailman out 
of the directory it was installed into (which should be different than 
the directory you unpacked the source in).  There should be a paths.py 
file in the bin/ directory.  The symptoms you describe sound like what 
would happen if you try to run things out of the directory you
unpacked the source in (where there's no paths.py file in bin/).
