installing binaries under /usr/share?



This is likely more work that it is worth for a package like
Emacspeak -- if you do this, then make uninstall will have to
carefully clean up in multiple places.

There used to be a good reason to separate out arch-dependent
files to a separate directory at a time /usr/share was shared
among multiple operating systems; no one does that type of
sharing anymore --
