This suggests a problem with htdig / htsearch rather than Mailman.

You could try adding "-v -v" before the "-c" to increase the verbosity

Some versions of htdig have a bug that requires this file be writeable
by the user running htsearch.  Try making it world writeable and rerun
the htsearch commandline.  If it works, you could change the permissions
back and change ownership to be that of the web server uid.  If not, ask
on htdig-general (http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=4593).
