I'm running Mailman 2.1.2 on FreeBSD 4.8. I tried a mailman-like URL
on my server and got:

<Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the CGI
wrapper script to be executed as group "www", but
the system's web server executed the CGI script as
group "nobody".  Try tweaking the web server to run the
script as group "www", or re-run configure, 
providing the command line option `--with-cgi-gid=nobody'.>

I used <./configure --with-mail-gid=mail --with-cgi-gid=nobody>

JC> For version 2.1.x make sure you are running Mailmanctl.

It quits saying <Site list is missing: mailman>

Should the first group really be called "mailman"? I had it named
something different, put the aliasses in place but did not receive the
email I was promised...
