This link cannot be found :(
But I think I found what you mean :)

I now configured Mailman with
--prefix=/opt/mailman --with-mail-gid=mailman --with-cgi-gid=www
and all seems to work.
A bit strange, because if I read the entry for --with-cgi-gid
correctly, www should be taken as default.

Another thing I don't understand is this: originally I configure
--prefix=/opt/mailman --with-mail-gid=bbs --with-cgi-gid=www
but then Mailman complained because the mail server (postfix) was
running with group mailman instead of bbs.
But postfix does not belong to group mailman...
