Cool, it worked like a charm :)
So, the following .procmailrc rule properly sorts all incoming mail
coming from Listar mailing lists (including *lfs* ones and probably some
others, I'm not too good in mail headers yet). If someone finds it useful,
I would like to tell that those string are coming from excellent Mutt/Procmail
hint pages that I found at [LinuxBrit] server ( Those
hints help me to sort messages from mailing lists and block out most of spam.
Here it is:

* X-List: \/[^@]+
$MAILDIR/lists/`echo $MATCH | sed -e 's/[\/]/_/g'`
