I have no strong opinions on that.  Yor proposed change seemed
simple enough, OTOH I think I haven't seen a good argument that the
current locations are bad.

The most anachronistic default location IMO is the /usr/local/lib/mosaic
path for mailcap and mime.types files in userdefs.h and lynx.cfg.
But that hasn't directly to do with the automatic installation
procedure.  And since (1) afaik there is no universal standard location
for thoses files, and (2) people may not want to use the 'system standard' 
mailcap or mime.types for lynx even if there is one, and (3) people
may have put those files under /usr/local/lib/mosaic for the sake of
a previous lynx version, it should possibly stay as it is (it's only
a default after all).
