Note on the earlier discussion of install-location: Perhaps the PE executables, being, well, PE, should go in PREFIX/share/forum-x.x/, with the symbolic link and whatnot. Here's the output of appropriate variables to use in or, and their purposes:

  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
                          [same as prefix]
  --bindir=DIR            user executables in DIR [EPREFIX/bin]
  --sbindir=DIR           system admin executables in DIR [EPREFIX/sbin]
  --libexecdir=DIR        program executables in DIR [EPREFIX/libexec]
  --datadir=DIR           read-only architecture-independent data in DIR
  --sysconfdir=DIR        read-only single-machine data in DIR [PREFIX/etc]
  --sharedstatedir=DIR    modifiable architecture-independent data in DIR
--localstatedir=DIR modifiable single-machine data in DIR [PREFIX/var]
  --libdir=DIR            object code libraries in DIR [EPREFIX/lib]
  --includedir=DIR        C header files in DIR [PREFIX/include]
  --oldincludedir=DIR     C header files for non-gcc in DIR [/usr/include]
  --infodir=DIR           info documentation in DIR [PREFIX/info]
  --mandir=DIR            man documentation in DIR [PREFIX/man]

The "pirate" rhetoric is typically accepted because it blankets the
media so few people realize that it is radical.  It is effective
because, if copying by the public is fundamentally illegitimate, we
can never object to the publishers' demand that we surrender our
freedom to do so.  In other words, when the public is challenged to
show why publishers should not receive some additional power, the most
important reason of all--"We want to copy"--is disqualified in
