One thing I find suprising is that you install files to ${PREFIX}/var


I regard its name as suggesting a similar purpose to /var  e.g. according
to hier(7)

     /var/      Multi-purpose log, temporary, transient, and spool files.

Why do you chose to install files in that directory? (I know nothing of mumps)
