Presumably this is because the mail wrapper has some other name,
/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman.exe, but why? Or is there no
/usr/local/mailman/mail/* mail wrapper at all?

It may be a bug in check_perms. What options did you give to configure?
What is the name of the mail wrapper file in /usr/local/mailman/mail/?
