After installing mail/mailman3, pkg-message is displayed:

To initialise Mailman's runtime directories, log files and database
for the first time, run

  service mailman info

You can then start Mailman by running:

  service mailman start

running "mailman info" reports errors that the following are not installed:


After installing these manually, 

# service mailman info
Usage: mailman [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...
Try 'mailman -h' for help.

Error: Invalid value for '-C' / '--config': File '/usr/local/mailman/etc/mailman.cfg' does not exist.

# find /usr/local/share/ | grep mailman
# man mailman       
No manual entry for mailman
# find /usr/local/etc/ | grep mailman
