I would start by not using enum. If you want to place something somewhere, use
the linker.

.segment        "MYZP" : zeropage
var0:   .res    1
var1:   .res    2
var2:   .res    4
varn:   .byte   0

Place this segment in it's own memory area starting at $50. The size is then
the fill level of the memory area:

        .import __MYZP_START__, __MYZP_LAST__   ; Linker defined

        lda     #<(__MYZP_LAST__ - __MYZP_START__)
