      Description

      Several customers have complained about the use of
      /usr/java to install java on linux.

      We are apparently one of the few applications that does this XFree is another
      I can think of.

      As there does not seem to be a concensus of where the JRE should really live
      we should all users the option to at least link to a directory they feel
      comfortable with, ie /usr/local/java or /opt or /usr
      even if we still install into /usr/java
