The first time I installed Mailman, I tried to do it from the Red Hat
binary RPM. Red Hat apparently packaged the Mailman RPM on the
assumption that it would be used with Sendmail. I futzed around for a
while and finally decided to just install from source. Now whenever I
install Mailman I don't even bother with the provided RPMs, I download
the latest source package and use it to create my own binary RPM on
that system. It's just like doing a "make install" except that you
still get the benefits RPM brings to the table. It doesn't add more
than about 5 minutes or less to the process.
BTW I entered a bug report on this subject in Red Hat's Bugzilla quite a
long time ago, but to my knowledge there has been no action on it.
It is better to know nothing than to have learned nothing.
