[Mailman-Users] Upgrading to 2.1.6

I've just upgraded my 2.0.x installation of mailman to 2.1.6, and I'm so
close I can practically taste it.

But it's still not working.

When I send mail to a list on the server, I get back the following error:
The original message was received at Sat, 31 Dec 2005 14:37:28 -0500 (EST)
from utk-cls.ra.utk.edu []

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
sh: /usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper: not found
554 5.3.0 unknown mailer error 1

That's obviously coming from the old version of mailman, but I can't find
what I missed.  Can anyone help me?

I've tracked this down to perm issues (way up the tree) between making 
this as yourself and then installing as mailman.  Solution is to just do 
the make as mailman, since it would appear that packages are also 
untar'd during the 'make install'  into the src dirs which IMO is a 
definite no-no.
