You are using python2.4 which should support Chinese/Korean/Japanese 
codecs by itself. So, you need not, in principle, install 
Korean/Japanese codecs which are included in mailman distribution.
You may want to try my language select patch in the SF tracker:


Or, you can go to the <mailman_source>/misc directory and find [Kk]orean 
notation in Makefile and paths.py and comment them out, then do the make 
install again.
