As Christopher said in another reply, you don't run mm_cfg.py, you just
edit it. Mailman modules import it.

However, you may wish to run it just to "error check" it, and the above
should work, i.e.

cd $prefix/Mailman
python ./mm_cfg.py

should be able to import from Defaults, so I don't know what's
happening unless you have a base mm_cfg.py from some packager that
contains things I don't know about.
