Well, that's progress.  I found that I had a typo in the script alias 
path.  I've got all the rest of the stuff from that section in place.

Now I'm seeing:

Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the CGI
wrapper script to be executed as group "www", but
the system's web server executed the CGI script as
group "nogroup".  Try tweaking the web server to run the
script as group "www", or re-run configure,
providing the command line option `--with-cgi-gid=nogroup'

The only thing I see in the apache config regarding group is

<IfModule !mpm_winnt.c>
<IfModule !mpm_netware.c>
	User nobody
	Group #-1

I'm not running winnt.c or netware.c, so I assume that means I'm 
defaulting to User nobody and Group #-1.

Would it be a better option to re-run config with the nogroup option, 
or put something in the apache config (and if the latter, what should 
it be?)

Thanks for the help.
