IC has hit a bit of a snag in being converted to an
ebuild for Gentoo Linux:


Here is the specified problem:

First of all, ebuilds can't install into /usr/local,
per FHS.

Secondly, try installing it into its default location,
/usr/local/interchange, and examine the contents of
that directory. You'll see that even if you could do
--prefix=/usr, it does not conform to the /usr
hierarchy. Of course, they don't use autotools, so you
can't specify where you want it to install (well, you
can specify the root directory, but that's not

Ideally, there should be a way to specify where to
place individual subdirectories, which, AFAIK, is not
possible ATM.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
