It would appear that there is some confusion, probably due to the
'--prefix' and '--with-var-prefix' you configured with not being
correct. It looks like they should be --prefix=/usr/local/mailman

What's in /usr/local/mailman/bin/paths.py for 'prefix =' and is there a
Mailman directory and a Mailman/__init__.py file in that directory?
