I think it's probably best to leave it in the upstream location in this case.
However given that /var/log will probably be a separate FS and /var/log/audit
will certainly be a separate FS for anyone who is really serious about
auditing it seems that relying on /usr isn't going to be a problem - non-root
FSs have to be mounted before auditd is started anyway.
