If you still have the original directory in which you unpacked Mailman
2.1.13, look in the config.log file for the "Invocation command line".

Download and unpack 2.1.16 into a new directory.
Configure using the same command as before.
Stop mailman.
As root, run 'make install'.
Start mailman.

If you don't have the original configure command, you'll have to figure
out what options you used. First look in your installed
Mailman/Defaults.py. If PREFIX is other than '/usr/local/mailman', set
it with --prefix=. If VAR-PREFIX is other than the PREFIX value, set it
with --var-prefix=.

Likewise, use --with-mailhost= and --with-urlhost= to set

See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node7.html> for more info on
configure options.
