I don't think it needs to know. The -f option told it to process the
lists and it is trying, but it can't.

I think there is something wrong with the config for at least the
'birn' list. Try running bin/dumpdb against the config.db and/or
config.pck file(s) for this list and comparing what attributes (names,
not necessarily values) are dumped with those from a "good" list. We
know bin/list_lists complained about real_name (probably not existing)
for some list, and bin/update is complaining similarly about
delivery_status for this list. Note that output from bin/dumpdb can be
quite large if a list has many members.
