>From my apache2 config:

   ScriptAlias /mailman/  "/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/"
    <Directory "/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

That's about it. Well, that and the correct permissions -everywhere-.
Even if check_perms thinks they're correct, check what uid/gid apache
will use for cgi's against all the directory permissions.
