Have you also seen which is linked from that?

You basically want to unpack the source tarball or retrieve the latest
source from Launchpad, configure it with --prefix=/usr/lib/mailman, and
'make' but not 'make install', and then update everything that's in
/usr/lib/mailman from the resulting Mailman/, build/bin, build/cron,
messages/, scripts and templates/.

You don't need to be concerned about /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin,
/usr/lib/mailman/mail or /usr/lib/mailman/tests.

I think that will work, but I've never done it so no guarantees.
