Steps you need to take to run mailman on a linux grsecurity protected kernel

1) Install and run securelinux_fix.py -f

2) Grsecurity will not run binaries if the directory they're in is writable by a user other than root:

   panoramix:/var/local/mailman/mail# chown root.mailman .
   panoramix:/var/local/mailman/mail# chmod 755 .
   panoramix:/var/local/mailman/mail# chattr +i .

3) Apply the same fix to the CGIs

   panoramix:/var/local/mailman/cgi-bin# chown root.mailman .
   panoramix:/var/local/mailman/cgi-bin# chmod 755 .
   panoramix:/var/local/mailman/cgi-bin# chattr +i .
