Problem found and solved: I had run "make" as root, but "make install"
as "mailman", and "make install-packages", which I assume is part of
"make install", needs to be able to write to files in the source
directory structure where "make" was run.

I had naively assumed that "make install" did nothing but copy existing

Running "make install-packages" as root solved the problem.

And in the future, I'll run "make install" as root.

Thanks for your help!
