hi all,

i've installed mailman-2.1.1 on a NetBSD 1.6 on SunSparc64 Machine with qmail-1.03 and apache-2.0.37. the installation and 
configuration are working fine. i've already created some list but i still have one problem when the mailman archives incomind 
mails. it seems to be creating directories and files with wrong directory permission (only 775). i always use the check_perms to 
correct problem:

/usr/local/mailman/bin/check_perms -f
directory permissions must be 02775: /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/team/2003-May (fixing)
directory permissions must be 02775: /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/team/attachments/20030506 (fixing)
Problems found: 2
Re-run as mailman (or root) with -f flag to fix

this kinda wasteful of time management. i've setted the correct ownership for the mailman user for the mailman directory. the 
mailman pid is also owned by the mailman user.

i've also check the the README.BSD and made the recommendation for the make: % make DIRSETGID=: install

but all of these went back to the same problem. when the mailman application archives, esp for attachments, there is still the  
permission problem.

thus i am asking anyone from this mailing list to please point me to the right direction.

thank you,
