Probably.  I think there are several other problems:

* I don't know why paths.el defines file names rather than command

* I think news-path, news-inews-program and the gnus-... variables
  should be moved to Gnus files;

* Most of this should be done at runtime, not in paths.el, which is
  dumped.  There's no reason that rmail-spool-directory should be the
  same on the target system as the build system, for instance -- it's
  rather random on systems I'm familiar with.
