apache 2.2.0

Okay I just upgrade from apache 1.3.x to apache 2.2.0 and arriving at a
permissions problem when viewing pipermail mailman directories.  

--- Browser error message ---

You don't have permission to access /pipermail/list/ on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an
ErrorDocument to handle the request.

--- snip ---

Here is what apache places in the error_log:

--- snip ---

Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible:
/usr/home/mailman/archives/public/list, referer:

---- snip ----

Here is what I've done so far:

---- apache httpd.conf file ----

in the virtual host stanza

        ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/home/mailman/cgi-bin/
        Alias /pipermail/ /usr/home/mailman/archives/public/
        Alias /icons/ /usr/home/mailman/icons/
        <Directory /usr/home/mailman/archives/public/>
                  Options +FollowSymlinks
                  Allow from all 

--- snip ---

then restarted apache.

--- snip ---

looks like the directories have proper permissions:
typhoon# ls -ld /usr/local/mailman/archives/private
drwxrws---  103 mailman  mailman  2560 Apr 21 21:49
typhoon# ls -ld /usr/local/mailman/archives/public/
drwxrwsr-x  2 mailman  mailman  1536 Apr 21 21:49
typhoon# ls -ld /usr/local/mailman/archives/public/list
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  mailman  54 Apr 21 19:00
/usr/local/mailman/archives/public/list ->
typhoon# ls -ld /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/list
drwxrwsr-x  50 www  mailman  4096 Apr 21 18:34

--- snip ---

what else could be the problem here?
