Whew! Then you can ignore everything I said about running
Mailman on MacOS X Server. Thankfully.

I think this should be safe, but I'd want a backup of all the
mailing lists, etc... just in case. It shouldn't go randomly

binary from what it has just built, but I don't feel that you can
never be 100% certain.
