In my migration of a MacOS 10.5.8 server from mailman 2.1.9 to 2.1.12, I discovered I had to install Python 2.5.4 and XCode 3.2.1 to get a compiler.  It compiled with the command:

/configure --prefix=/usr/share/mailman --with-cgi-gid=_www --with-mail-gid=mail --with-mailhost=domain.com --with-urlhost=domain.com

But now when I try and run  I get:

server:mailman-2.1.12 paul$ sudo /usr/share/mailman/bin/mailmanctl restart
Restarting Mailman's master qrunner
PID unreadable in: /usr/share/mailman/data/master-qrunner.pid
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/mailman/data/master-qrunner.pid'
Is qrunner even running?

I find the .pid file in:


Should I be adding something to the configure command?
