Have you looked at Majordomo?  It's in perl, at least.  And I gather if you
get the MajorCool web interface to go with it, it's fairly nicely useable. 
It'd probably break a hundred ways if you upgraded perl, but given that you
can't even install python on the machine, I imagine you don't have to worry
quite so much about that.

Also, what mail server is it running?  I think some may have list
functionality built-in, which might make your life easier.

Do a search on "mailing list software" in these archives if you've got a
moment (google can search just our archives if you so desire) because I know
there've been list recommendations for things other than mailman or
majordomo in the past, but those are the two I've used extensively and feel
comfy recommending.  Teh only other name that comes to mind is "smartlist"
and I don't remember anything about it.
