Isn't that what happens if I:
  - unpack the tar for the installation,
    ( plus the tar for the Dutch langpack,
      and move all the langpack debs to the DEB folder of the install)
  - go to the folder DEB,
    create folder TMPRT there and in that one run
    for i in ./*.deb ; do dpkg-deb -x i$ . ; done
  - and move the whole resulting opt folder to some other place
  - then finaly change bootstraprc for a different userprofile location

(Indeed no system integration.)

I will look what is the latest daily build (that I can find) without the 
problem. Will report later...
