Have you been successful it making it more FHS compliant?  (e.g. moving
Library/Headers to /usr/include, moving Library/Preferences,
Library/Images, etc. to /usr/share, etc.) Is there anything in
particular that caused problems?

I would be interested in helping at some point.  But not until at least
the middle of next month.
