In the INSTALL file for Mailman it details some setup directions:
Make sure this directory is set to group `mailman' (or whatever
you're going to specify as --with-ownergroup) and has the setgid
bit set (but see README.BSD if you're on a BSD system). You
probably also want to guarantee that this directory is readable
and executable by everyone. For example, these shell commands
will accomplish this:
% cd $prefix (cd /home/mailman)
% chgrp mailman .
% chmod a+rx,g+ws .

I friggin hate the RPM versions of Mailman. You might simply want to
install from source and see if everything works after that...

I'm guessing that the links point to directories that no longer exist
(or never existed). Why not recreate those directories?

9mb?!? That's not a lot of free space... I personally would worry about
that. Check your log files and see if you can't delete some - so you
can reclaim more space.
