Note that since the Developer Tools CD packed with "Jaguar" there have been
a small but critical update, and more recently a complete new release
(December 2002 Developer Tools).  Hope you have a fast connection...it's a
300+ meg download [1].  (You can get a CD shipped for $19.95 plus tax.)
But since you want Mailman, you likely have a fast connection.

You need to be a "member" of one of Apple's developer programs, but the
free (on-line) level is sufficient.  Do read the license agreement...there
may be some things that turn you away.

and click on the little Developer widget to get started.

I'm not sure which of the three releases is best for building.

(It's impossible to provide a direct URL to the download.)


[1]  I have a 56K frame connection.  I took my Windows/Linux laptop to the
office basement (my ISP, where I work) and exercised our in-house 1mb DLS
connection for the download (doing that avoided impacting customer
traffic).   Into the Linux side of the laptop.   It was about 45 minutes at
a reported 119.5 KB per second.  Then I came home and moved the file to the
Mac over Ethernet with scp, and burned a CD.
