Sounds like the installation failed some place.  Or are you running
mmsitepass out of the directory you unpacked the source in, not the
directory you installed to?

If /home/mailman/mailman-1.0b9/bin has no paths.py file, then one of
those two scenarios are likely.  If you ran configure without using
the --prefix option, then you installed Mailman into /home/mailman so
you should run mmsitepass from /home/mailman/bin.
