Yeah, the path declarations are correct. 

My problem was thinking that it was the "mailmanctl" script that should go in
/etc/init.d, rather than the "mailman" script. Since the INSTALL
instructions only really cover other setups than Gentoo, I wasn't looking
closely enough at sections that seemed not to apply. (The "mailman" script
would still need some edits to work right in Gentoo - but invoking
mailmanctl in its home location as part of my Gentoo sendmail startup seems
to get it going okay.)

Oh well....
