The FHS says that / should only have directories.  If the user has .el 
files there, he will know about it and not execute the rm command or not 
care if they are deleted.  Not changing the allows the user 
to reconfigure after and reinstall into the proper directory if emacs is 
added later and requires no change if emacs is already installed.
