If what is happening is that currently named destination directories
are given new FHS-blessed destinations, my sincerest hope would be that
packages would not need to change at all.  It would be an auto???? tool +
installer (sysadmin) issue that I get to stay out of.

AutoConf should support very convenient mechanisms to handle whatever
layout makes sysadmins happy.  --with-gnu-layout or --with-fhs-layout
would be good.  Maybe better:  --with-layout-file=/path/to/layout/file ?
