In other words the startup failed because the rabbitmq user could not 
access files under /var/lib/rabbitmq.

Presumably you have modified the RPM to not create that directory with 
the appropriate permissions? In which case you'll need to get your RPM 
to redirect RabbitMQ to use a different directory. See 
http://www.rabbitmq.com/relocate.html and
