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

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.
