This brings up a question: If I am Installing something outside of the Packaging Infrastructure (usually, via a TarBall), I usually install inside of my Home Directory (for example, using $PATH for ~/bin). If I *MUST* make it available to other Users, I use the /usr/local/* directories.
Now the question: Does dpkg have options for doing this? (Or would I need to, still use the "tarball"? (The reason I bring up dpkg, is that it, at least gives "lip service" to Dependencies).
Thanks in advance,
