    Adding to the mess, I am running mailman right now with postfix in a
Solaris 8 box.  Besides my own errors (I am working on that ;), I had no
problems getting it to work. I literally set it to do postfix (and
postfix to do it), typed ./config and off it went.  Compiler used was
gcc. So, if you need someone to harass, that much I may be able to help. =)
