What happens if you run this command directly from the shell? 
It is possible I have bad error handling somewhere which is hiding the real
error message...

Could you maybe try:
PUBLIC_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER = 'strace /usr/bin/lurker-index -l imc-sysadmin -m >
 /tmp/logs 2>&1'
... so we can see what exactly lurker is doing?

Is the | here perhaps in error? (I know nothing about mailman)

PS. My CC to mailman lists fails because I am not subscribed, sorry.
