I'm not certain, but did you do this?  (from INSTALL):

    - Configure your web server to give $prefix/cgi-bin permission to
      run CGI scripts.  You probably need to be root to do this.

      The line you should add might look something like the following
      (with the real absolute directory substituted for $prefix, of

          Exec          /mailman/*      $prefix/cgi-bin/*
          ScriptAlias   /mailman/       $prefix/cgi-bin/

      Consult your web server's documentation for details.
