1- move it back
2a- create a link
     ln -s /usr/local/mailman /usr/lib/mailman
2b- change the Apache config (it's just a couple of lines
    in the config file and you can grep for "lib/mailman"
    to find them!)
2c- reinstall Mailman (from source) and read the INSTALL
    file for the proper switch or switches to add
    to ./configure in order to install mailman
    to /usr/lib/mailman
