Finally got mailman working at least half-assed. Had to add '-subscribe' and '-unsubscribe' to the local_part_suffix list, no idea why they weren't there in the README instructions. Also had to fix my Apache setup; I hadn't read the docs and had copied the scripts to my own cgi-bin, which didn't work worth a damn, so now I put in my config:

Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/ ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/mailman/ /var/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/

Seems to be working OK except I'm not getting my own posts to my gmail account. But then again, gmail seems to do this a lot with emails that I send, however circuitously, to myself.
