Yes, this article is very informative, and at present may be the best
thing available for an old-package to new-source upgrade.  And yes, it
does not address the issue of making this information available as a
default part of the 3rd party package.

Such an enhancement would obviously not help anyone using a currently
"older" Mailman package, but going forward, say into MM3, it might be a
good idea to make this information available in some such way.  I use
courier as a MTA, and courier has a "courier-config" executable
in /usr/bin which spits out all sorts of useful build information,
including the package creator's build-time configure args.
