IMO it's not a good idea to try to overwrite a vendor-supplied software 
installation with a self-compiled one, unless you *really* know what you're 
doing. Either you stick with the vendor version, or you install yours 
separately, in a completely different path. Of course the latter means more 
work (migrate the lists, create your own startup solution etc.), but your 
approach is bound to break. If Apple decides to upgrade Mailman once they 
release 10.5.7, major breakage could ensue.

Why don't you just stick with Apple's version?
