To repeat myself, the solution is to -not- use the freebsd port. Install
mailman from it's source, using it's procedures. You'll have less headaches.

The bsd ports/packages system is a wonderful thing, IMHO better than 
pretty much all of the linux-based ones, but sometimes a software
package just installs better from it's released source code or sometimes
you need a compile option that just isn't handled by the port makefiles.
/usr/local/src can be your friend :-)
