Were are applications supposed to live, that are completely contained
inside a folder and are not flexible enough to be split into bin, lib
and share etc? Udig is an executable inside a folder containing all
the needed libs and referring to those through the internal relative
path. I will investigate the possibility to split, but were to put it
if it has to be like that? Perhaps a /opt would be the most linux-like
choice? Are there other softwares having the same porblem?
