The default for both 'prefix' (basically the source code) and
'var_prefix' (mutable data) for a built from source configure is
/usr/local/mailman. Various downstream packagers will configure mailman

I was wrong to create the sample script assuming that everything was in
/usr/lib64/mailman. That was an oversimplification.
