Leafnode-2 can deal with a new directory location, just rsync the whole
spool if that isn't too inconvenient, compile on the new machine with
proper --enable-spooldir=/some/where setting and that should be
it. Remember to use the -a option so rsync copies hard links as hard
links rather than files.
