In installed Mailman 2.1.4 with postafix 2.0.16 on freebsd 4.9

I get this error msg at the end of list creation .

I read the FAQ doc:

here my files:

-rw-rw-r--  1 mailman  mailman   2660 Apr  2 17:12 aliases
-rw-r-----  1 mailman  mailman  65536 Apr  2 16:59 aliases.db

My POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD is not /usr/local/bi but /usr/local/sbin
and my POSTFIX_MAP_CMD is not /usr/local/bin but /usr/local/sbin
How can I add the right path to the config?

Also, I have not files: virtual-mailman or virtual-mailman.db in
In my postfix conf:
virtual_alias_maps =

In the /var/logmaillog:
Apr  2 17:38:01 www postfix/cleanup[13309]: fatal: open database
/usr/local/mailman/data/virtual-mailman.db: No such file or directory

Apr  2 17:38:02 www postfix/master[58528]: warning:

Do you have any idea ?
