[Mailman-Users] after check_perms -f -- cgis no longer work

On a gentoo linux box with a from source made 2.1.5 (not from  
emerge), mailman was happily running, except some archives were not  
being updated.  I ran a bin/check_perms -f and now the cgis (listinfo  
or any of them) are no longer working and the apache error log shows  
the (infamous) "Premature end of script headers: /web/xxxx.com/ 
mailman/cgi-bin/listinfo" error.

Neither mailman or apache have been updated recently and before the  
check_perms it was working fine.  If I go in as mailman and run the  
cgi listinfo at the command line, for example, it dumps the right html.

I went back and looked at the config in the mailman source and it has  
good cgi_gid set for example.

I am stumped. I have messed around with the permissions and ownership  
of the cgi and run check_perms -f a few times (says no problems) but  
the cgis won't run.

Any hints or pointers would be appreciated.
