Do you have a line in your /etc/aliases file that looks JUST like this:

majordomo:        "|/usr/local/bin/majordomo-1.94.4/wrapper majordomo"

And does /usr/local/bin/majordomo-1.94.4/wrapper exist? Don't you have to
install majordomo into some directory other than the one you unpacked the
installation files into, and don't the installation files automatically
unpack into a directory called majordomo-1.94.4 ?

    I had some similar issues the other day, and I finally got it figured
out. Nobody answered my questions, so I thought I'd answer yours, if I
could. Not that I really know what I"m talking about, but majordomo IS
working for me now. Have you gotten it working yet?
    Good luck,
