Look in Mailman's lists/LISTNAME/ directory. I think you will see one
config.pck file, no config.pck.last file and one or more
config.pck.tmp.* files.

As the Mailman user (_mailman on FreeBSD ?) try to cd to the
lists/LISTNAME/ directory and for one (or the only) config.pck.tmp.*
file try

ln config.pck.tmp.whatever config.pck.last

If that fails, figure out why.
