In the Postfix RPM *many* files are installed at the wrong place.  The most
obvious problems are that log files and spool/queue directories are
installed somewhere in /usr/share (!). Maybe I'll redo the whole RPM soon
myself and adapt it to decent standards.

You're right...  I can't see why I posted this bug report.  Maybe I was confused
with MailMan, but even for MailMan the paths have been made better in 7.1 (in
7.0 spool dirs etc. of MailMan were indeed in /usr/share).  Seems to be a black
hole in my memory :-).
