That's correct. You first need to create the new Mailman list and then
run the command

./bin/arch --wipe <list_name> bcc-portal-dev.archive.mbox

Where <list_name> is the name of your new Mailman list.

As far as the majordomo2mailman.pl script is concerned, it's
unsupported. If it doesn't work for you, you'll need to set up the new
Mailman list by hand. You can use the admin Mass Subscribe web page to
inport your membership list. See
