Mailman is being pretty obvious here with the error messages.
You say that you specified "--with-mail-gid=root" when you built
Mailman. That may be required in order to have appropriate
user/group permissions to the log files, etc.... However, the error
message is saying that you also need "--with-cgi-gid=apache" in order
to make the web interface part of Mailman work with Apache.
