Good idea, I suggest we make this procedure the standard:
1) Install in $(prefix)/programname-major.minor, executable in subdir bin
2) Link that dir to $(prefix)/programname
3) Link executable in $(prefix)/programname/bin to $(prefix)/bin/webservices

For installing under Windows without cygwin (I asume that will happen at some
point in the future) we could use the directory c:\DotGNU as prefix, the
DotGNU\bin dir could hold the non-webservice stuff (VRS, SEE, etc).
