To move python from the unpack/build directory to the installation
directory, you do

make install

but as rich mentions in another post, just edit the Python in the
install directory and don't bother with make at all.

I suspect this is all going to turn out to be a web browser issue.

Here's what I'd look at first.

Check the host name in the heading of the listinfo page. I.e., hostname
in "hostname Mailing lists'. Is this the same as the URL hostname.

Then maybe try this patch which will write some stuff to a Mailman log
named 'debug'.
