What does your httpd/access_log and httpd/error_log tell you?

Yep; these are created when you do "make install". Is /usr/share/mailman
configured to be readable by the http server?

These should be owned by the "mailman" user and the "mailman" group. As for
access rights, I have them go=wrs and u=rx.
