$prefix/archives and the private/ and public/ sub-directories thereof
are created on installation, and if Mailman is running there must be a
'mailman' site list and thus $prefix/archives/private/mailman/ and
$prefix/archives/private/mailman.mbox/ subdirectories whether or not
they contain any actual archives.

Further, If $prefix/archives/private didn't exist, check_perms would
have thrown a "OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:" exception
instead of reporting it was o+x.
