[Mailman-Users] Restoring Mailman after a crash?

Until last week, I was pretty lucky with Mailman. I installed it, and
it did its thing. Beautifully.
Last week my FreeBSD system had a disk crash. The drive only makes
sickening clicking sounds and SpinRite can't touch it.
Luckily, I'd been doing weekly backups, so I didn't lose more than a day
or two of messages. I backed up by running tar on the entire mailman
directory structure. And it's all there!
But, now comes the fun part, how do I recreate the mailing lists, the
archives, and so on? Is there a FAQ entry? If so, I haven't seen it.
