It seems something is wrong with Python or with the shell. I still have
no idea what, but try running it interactively. I.e.,

...banner from python...
>>> from compileall import *
>>> compile_dir("/mailman/mailman/Mailman")

Actually, this whole step strictly isn't required as each module will
be compiled when first imported anyway, but pre-compiling will speed
up the initial operation of Mailman a bit.
