    I believe the lsb’s file system hierarchy is supposed to take care of those “slight differences” between systems.

    I, of course, have no dilusions of it doing away with all problems, but surely it’s possible to incorporate some kind of error detection (dependencies, for instance) into an installer… or the format itself… so as to avoid most problems.
