Problem Found!

The problem was in the /usr/adm/sm.bin dir.  The file mailman_wrapper was not a
link but an executable.  This executable was not being updated, and therefore each
compilation of the source was being ignored.

Thank you for your eyes and ears in helping me to diagnose and fix the problem!
