murray v. mailman continues

I'm trying again after my previous mailman failures. I've learnt that mailman just does not work with virtualhosts, because it hardcodes one user and each virtualhost runs scripts as a different user, and because virtualhosts (because of suexec) refuse to run scripts from common places like /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/.

So I've created a virtualhost (which requires a subdomain, but lists.gnome-ev.de is OK to have anyway) just for mailman and installed mailman from source in the virtualhosts's allowed cgi-bin path.

However, it still complains that it's not running as the www group, even though I configured it from source like so:

./configure --prefix=/srv/www/htdocs/web10/software/mailman --with-cgi-gid=ftponly --with-mail-gid=ftponly --with-groupname=ftponly --with-username=web10
