Having previously used RPM installations of mailman, we've run into
issues in getting configure to put things in the places we would
like to see them. We can specify --prefix=/usr/lib/mailman and
--with-var-prefix=/var/lib/mailman but we seem to be unable to
specify a log directory such as /var/log/mailman, a config directory
such as /etc/mailman (this one may really be an RPM post install
script thing that creates symlinks to /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman).
I've also seen some differences in terms of where some directories
are located, sometimes in /usr/lib/mailman, sometimes in
The ultimate goal here is to utilize a sane and consistent directory
layout across the hosts we have mailman installed on.
Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
