No, you don't want to be changing group membership. You should do what
its telling you:

This assumes you built and installed mailman yourself, if you didn't you
can't perform this step.

cd to the mailman source root
./configure --with-mail-gid=mailman
make install

Don't forget to add any other configure options you used previously.
