I sould preface this by saying it is 99% certain that all my mailman problems are due to NetBSD's pkgsrc being completely fubar, and I mean ALL of pkgsrc. I should prolly compile mailman outside of pkgsrc.

Thanks but I did have a mailman group and mailman user and the mailman package was compiled with:

MAILMAN_USER?=          mailman
MAILMAN_GROUP?=         mailman
MAILMAN_MAILGROUP?=     guest # group of user 'daemon'

I added:

MAILMAN_USER = 'mailman'
MAILMAN_GROUP= 'mailman'

to mm_cfg.py to fix the mailmanctl/daemon issue.

When I try try to accept an invitation to a group I get this bounce message:

<mung-request at pigeonnier.org>: Command died with status 2:
    "/usr/pkg/lib/mailman/mail/mailman request mung". Command output: Group
    mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be executed
    group "guest", but the system's mail server executed the mail script as
    group "mailman".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as
    "guest", or re-run configure,  providing the command line option
