Well, my problem is that I have this system:
Slackware 8
Sendmail 8.12.2 with libmilter
RavAntivirus Milter
MimeDefang with SpamAssesin
and If I install Majordomo 1.92.5 there are much problems

I follow the instructions in the INSTALL but there's a conflict with the permissions, because the error is the next:
Apr 19 17:09:10 amelia sendmail[3260]: g3JK9Al3003257: SYSERR(majordomo): openmailer: insufficient privileges to change gid, RunAsUid=16, new_gid=0, gid=12, egid=12
Apr 19 17:09:10 amelia sendmail[3261]: g3JK9Al3003257: SYSERR(majordomo): openmailer: insufficient privileges to change gid, RunAsUid=16, new_gid=0, gid=12, egid=12

Apr 19 17:45:35 amelia sendmail[3540]: g3JKjZOF003536: SYSERR(mail): openmailer: insufficient privileges to change gid, RunAsUid=8, new_gid=0, gid=12, egid=12


majordomo is installed with the user majordomo(16) and the  group mail(12)
sendmail mail(8):12

if this can help, good.
