In the process of coming up with packaging guidelines for octave packages in
Fedora, the issue of package install location has come up. It has been
suggested that the binary components of octave packages be installed in
/usr/lib{,64}/octave rather than /usr/libexec/octave. I agree that this is
more compliant with current standards. Thoughts? Are there packages that
install stand alone executables that would still belong in /usr/libexec? I
don't know of any. Looks like there may be some .mex files there, are they
even useful?

This would be my proposed patch. It puts everything under $(libdir)/octave/$(version). Also, is there any reason to keep the various *archlibdir directories? I can't see that anything uses them. Comments?
