/var/run is not deprecated but legacy, that is there is *no* reason to adjusted
most packages around. Only packages which are used before the legacy link is
available have to be corrected.

Even upstream systemd refer /var/run, e.g.

Upstream/README- systemd requires that the /run mount point exists.
systemd also
Upstream/README: requires that /var/run is a a symlink → /run.
Upstream/README-

the same legacy reason is used for e.g. /bin/mount, /bin/sh, /bin/bash,
/sbin/fsck, ... compare with current git repository of systemd
