I would like to apply the patch that Mark sent to me but I see from faq 4.40 that I will need to go through the same process of './configure' and 'make install' as I would with an upgrade.  Are there any other options?

FAQ 4.40 describes a general process for applying patches that could
patch files that are input to configure. For the admindb.py patch I
gave you, you don't have to do this. Just apply the patch to the
installed Mailman/Cgi/admindb.py file. Since it's a CGI, you don't
even have to restart Mailman.
