Do you have an MTA and Web-server installed?  The ./configure could not
find any Mail-server or Web-server.  

Since the ./configure did NOT run, there was nothing to install.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Error running ./configure

I'm trying to install mailman onto FreeBSD. When I ran ./configure, I
received the following message:

checking for CGI extensions... no
host info not found, set $MAILHOST and/or $WWWHOST environ vars

When I tried to issue "make install", I got the message: make: don't know
how to make install. Stop

Does this mean that the installation failed? What should I to fix the

Thank you in advance.
