/var/lib/corosync should be created at "make install" time and it´s
guaranteed to be there by packaging and after each reboot.

/var/run/corosync is more complicated. As Andrew already mentioned LSB,
we need to make sure that it´s created at startup time. Most daemons can
do that in the init script and be done with it. Corosync doesn´t have
that luxury because it can be invoked in several different ways (cman
for example), therefor it needs to do the dir creation/check within the
code as the init script is not always used.

This is the problem we need to address basically.
