Good Afternoon Thiago-

Whenever I install a new package I always set the PACKAGE_HOME

the new env variable reflecting the new folder e.g.
This also allows you to redefine the home location of the installed package e.g. ECLIPSE_HOME
without having to touch all the other configurations that use it since they reference ECLIPSE_HOME
