I don't know of any such option for dpkg (which is what apt uses to 
actually install the packages), but maybe you should explain what your 
real goal is. The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (see 'man hier') was 
created for a purpose.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
