Unifi's generic UNIX java packaging insists on dropping its turds under its
source code. We don't do that round here, thanks.

The steps below assume you have no existing unifi data, if you do, copy
`/usr/local/share/java/unifi/ somewhere and move the appropriate bits back

# pkg install -r FreeBSD unifi7
# mkdir -p -m 0770 /var/{run,log}/unifi /var/db/unifi/{dl,data}
# chown -R unifi:wheel /var/run/unifi /var/log/unifi /var/db/unifi

# rm /usr/local/share/java/unifi/{data,dlwork,logs,run}

# ln -s /var/db/unifi/data /usr/local/share/java/unifi/data
# ln -s /var/db/unifi/dl /usr/local/share/java/unifi/dl
# ln -s /var/log/unifi /usr/local/share/java/unifi/logs
# ln -s /var/run/unifi /usr/local/share/java/unifi/run
# ln -s /var/run/unifi /usr/local/share/java/unifi/work

It might be possible to give people either migration instructions, for the next
version, or maybe even automate it. Not sure if that's considered appropriate
or not. hard to cater for all possibilities.
