I've repeatedly rebuilt Mailman from source and installed it over
the top of my existing /home/mailman without problems.  (the
list-specific info is all in lists/ and archives/, and those
directories aren't touched by make install.)

This is what all of the instructions about "upgrading" Mailman
are for.
