Filesystem Hierarchy Standards (FHS) and certain file locations

There are two conflicting requirements in this game. On one hand, people
want a self-contained installation set which can be unpacked anywhere,
and $instdir/program/soffice can start LO.

On the other hand, Linux distros want "system integration", where
documentation goes to /usr/share, binaries go to /usr/bin, etc.

The usual hack to resolve this conflict is that /usr/bin has symlinks to
$libdir/libreoffice/ where the installation set is stored. (Perhaps the
same is true for /usr/share.)
