Of course you're correct for what the OP is doing but actually in way this a
kind of a cool idea.  If you could modify the apt-get installer to know
FreeBSD's linux compat layout and brand the binaries appropriately you would
have a fabously easy method of installing linux bins although I guess you'd
have better luck doing it yum rather than apt-get.
