Isn't there something like

ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/path/to/mailman/cgi-bin/"


Alias /pipermail/ "/path/to/mailman/archives/public/"

in something like /etc/apache2/conf.d/50_mailman.conf?

That should be all you need.

Typical Apache configuration directives for Mailman include the above
ScriptAlias and Alias directives plus something like

<Directory "/path/to/mailman/archives/public">
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

In your case, I would expect to find this in

Since that file would be included globally and not within a VirtualHost
block for a specific host like myhost.example.com, everything should
be OK as is.
