Can I just copy cron/crontab.in from the dist?  Also, I start  
mailmanctl and it starts:

20919 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 ./mailmanctl start
20942 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner  
--runner=ArchRunner:0:1 -s
20943 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner  
--runner=BounceRunner:0:1 -s
20944 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner  
--runner=CommandRunner:0:1 -s
20945 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner

20948 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner  
--runner=OutgoingRunner:0:1 -s
20951 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner  
--runner=VirginRunner:0:1 -s
20952 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python2.4 /var/mailman/bin/qrunner  
--runner=RetryRunner:0:1 -s

Then I start getting these errors from the mailman:

Traceback (most recent call last):

     from Mailman.Handlers import HandlerAPI
   File "/var/mailman/Mailman/Handlers/HandlerAPI.py", line 26, in ?
     from Mailman.pythonlib.StringIO import StringIO
ImportError: No module named pythonlib.StringIO
