Try with --with-mail-gid=mdom 

However, I suggest you to uninstall SuSE's mailman package, download the
package from MM site and 

./configure --prefix=/usr/lib/mailman
--with-var-prefix=/var/spool/mailman --with-mail-gid=mailman

make install

cd /usr/lib/mailman


bin/mailmanctl start

The above directories of $PREFIX are the original SuSE's mailman
