FWIW, once there is the configuration procedure in place, and all the
relevant pieces of code will use it instead of the current (ad-hoc)
search methods for the various bits, changing things like the
placement of the documentation etc would be very easy -- just change
some parts of the configuration script, and make it write the
different paths wherever the configuration is.
