I know nothing of the internals of ListProc, so I can't help directly,
but there are a couple of Majordomo to Mailman conversion scripts
(written in perl) in Mailman's contrib directory
that might give you some ideas.

Archives can be imported to Mailman using Mailman's bin/arch tool, but
the messages need to be in a *nix mbox format with '^From ' separators.
If they aren't already in that format, the task is to create it.
