Well, this is, of course, perfectly reasonable and I should have been able
to infer from the error and the colon and all what generated the error...

so I guess I'm asking why, when I originally compiled mailman with only a
--prefix=/usr/local/mailman, why did it try to use 8 when 'other daemon'
is the default and other does not exist, but daemon is 1?
