The scripts aren't an issue because they're compiled by Python on the
fly. It's the wrappers that would be the issue - cgi-wrapper.c and

By far the easiest way to address this is to just set up a web server
for Mailman only on the Sparc (or set up an MTA for Mailman only on
the x86) and run everything there. This avoids all the NFS
complications and allows having Python on only the one machine if
that's a concern.
