XORP as of 1.7-WIP in SVN is now compliant with the Filesystem Hierarchy 

Its directory is thus more in line with other packages for free 
UNIX-like operating systems.

I appreciate your feedback that this may have violated POLA for you, 
however, it's pretty much a prerequisite for getting it shipped in 
Ubuntu and other UNIX-like systems.

If you have any further queries please direct them to the xorp-users and 
xorp-hackers mailing lists.

Thank you for your interest in XORP.
