If you're only concerned about building the index, start_url can be
anything. The key is that start_url should equate to archives/private/
in a local_urls attribute.  E.g.,

start_url: http://example.com/mailman/searchall

You will also need to provide some actual URLs to a) a page that
presents a search form and b) a CGI (or WSGI) to post the form data to.
You can't use mmsearch for b) because it requires a list name. Also, if
you have any private archives, you have an authentication problem.
