Uh, yea, I'd say that was a problem, given that prat of mailman didn't compile.  Look through configure.log, and config.status, and review what configure did.  Configure rarely generates errors unless something majorly bad happens, but it *can* make the wrong guesses!

Note that /usr/include/bits/errno.h *should* exist.
The error you got:

>/usr/include/bits/errno.h:25: linux/errno.h: No such file or directory

Says that /usr/include/bits/errrno.h at line 25 referred to a file called linux/errno.h, and *that* was what it couldn't find.  I'd review bits/errno.h to see what it's referring to, and verify that that file is there, and as I said, double check what configure actuallys set, because it could have easily screwed up your include file paths.
