    We currently have /usr/local/mailman on each machine, and list data, 
archives, logs, Etc on shared storage.  One of the things we will be 
changing during this upgrade is to have everything Mailman live on the 
shared storage.  During my test upgrade (on another machine) I integrated 
/usr/local/mailman/* and directories from shared storage, and ran 
configure with the --prefix pointing to this new mount point - this 
appears to have worked properly, E.G. Mailman does not look for anything 
in any of the old paths.

Thanks for your reply,
