If that includes /var/lib/mailman/archives/private, then that's OK.
Otherwise note that /var/lib/mailman/archives/private must be o+x or
must have user:group xxx:list where xxx is the user that the web
server uses to access files.
If this is not the problem, make sure the directory
/var/lib/mailman/archives/public has Options +FollowSymlinks in your
web server config. I.e for Apache, put
Allow from all
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
