Check out the INSTALL file in a MM 2.1.x build directory. It tells you  
to create a site list, named mailman by default. mailmanctl will not  
start properly without it.

The $prefix/scripts/mailman shell script that the INSTALL instructions  
tells you to use for starting Mailman at startup should have been built  
correctly by the './configure; make install'. Take a look at its  
contents to make sure the path declarations are correct.
