What is the error exactly?  You never really said.

They aren't static web pages, they are CGI scripts.  And they should be
working fine -- you did the correct steps.  Although I think the
following should work better:

ScriptAlias /mailman	/home/mailman/cgi-bin/
Alias /pipermail 	/home/mailman/archives/public/  

Note that there are no trailing slashes after the alias names.  And you
don't the need the <Directory> section; the ScriptAlias token eliminate
the need for the ExecCGI option (it's automatically a CGI directory).

Again, what is the exact error message you're receiving?
