Just to be clear - you're saying that SOME php scripts in 
/var/www/w-lists execute properly, and others (the mailman scripts) do not?

If that's the case, you might want to really carefully examine what's 
different between the scripts that run and the ones that download - 
things like perhaps .php vs. php5 suffixes, and such.

You might also want to look around for extraneous .htaccess files that 
have conflicting information than what's in your config file.

I guess you should also see if the .php setup is different on your new
