I'm not sure what the Debian directory structure is, but you should be
able to get very close via the --prefix, --exec-prefix and
--with-var-prefix options to configure.

I have been through the patches at
<http://patch-tracker.debian.org/package/mailman>, and those issues
that are addressed that are significant, not Debian specific and that
I could understand have all been fixed in Mailman 2.1.14.
