I'm not sure I agree with this (and if the directory is moved it would
require a symlink or a source change).

I think it's more helpful to have all the Smail spool and log files
together, where people will expect them to be (/var/spool/smail).

The FSSTND is ambiguous, and the logfiles aren't accessed by anything
outside the Smail package, so we can do either.

If there is a general feeling on the list that the Smail logs should
be moved I'll move them.
