I'm also running mailman on OS X Server 10.2, installed from source. 
The difficulties  Brad describes are one of the main reasons I haven't 
updated to Panther Server.

Go to your source folder and look at the head of config.log. That will 
show what options were specified in the last install. Copy all of those 
except the different mail-gid in your configure command. This will not 
overwrite any existing lists. Just remember to run mailmanctl stop 
before doing it ;-)
