I have posted a message on likewise-open-dev@ but has not received an
answer yet... I don't know if they use proper "ports" or just a set of
script to generate packages.

You're right, but such a port could not be part of the official tree ;
maybe that's why there is no Likewise port yet.

Anyway, we are not the only ones to rewrite paths ; Ubuntu also seems to
install everything in more standard ones :


It seems that you are using Likewise, have you given the port a try ?
