Personally, I wouldn't use the ports version if you want to do multiple 
instances of Mailman.  I would install each version from our official source 
tarballs that you can download from www.list.org and ftp.gnu.org.

Alternatively, if you want to use the ports version, then I would keep it 
simple and serve only one domain.

Otherwise, I would recommend that you find the port maintainer for Mailman, 
and discuss this subject with them.  Hopefully, they would know enough about 
both sides of the problem to be able to recommend a solution or patch for you.
