If there are no serious objections, I would like to defer this change until FDO 3.5. I am not totally comfortable making the recommended install dir changes at this time as they do have an impact on some of the implemented NLS message handling functionality. Also, I just don’t have the time to do the proper Provider testing to make sure everything is working as it is supposed to.

Here's a patch for linux fixing to allow install in a non root environment, 
required for rpm building or local non-root installs.
Docs are installed in /usr/share/docs/fdo to match LHS instead of /usr/docs

Modern linux installs use /usr/share/locale instead of /usr/nls as regular 
unices, so be aware if you are packaging for linux or only compiling that you 
maybe will need need do a symlink to /usr/nls .cat files
