----------------------------------------------------------------

So prior to installing the Solaris 1.5.3 package, I ripped apart the package using pkgtrans
and took a look at the pkgmap.  By convention, packages that install content in /opt should
use /var/opt to install their var content.  Current, ADS has this:

1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3 0744 root root
1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default 0744 root root
1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/conf 0744 root root
1 f none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/conf/apacheds.conf 0644 root root 1400 55365 1216185769
1 f none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/conf/log4j.properties 0644 root root 1889 27319 1216185769
1 f none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/conf/server.xml 0644 root root 10871 23013 1216185769
1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/ldif 0744 root root
1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/log 0744 root root
1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/partitions 0744 root root
1 d none /var/lib/apacheds-1.5.3/default/run 0744 root root


It should really be using /var/opt/apacheds as stated by the filesystem(5) man page. 

Other points:
- version numbers are generally not a good idea.  If it is required, it would be better to
layer it:  /opt/apacheds/1.5.3/blah, /var/opt/apacheds/1.5.3/blah, ...  
- Files that change shouldn't be type f, they should be type e (editable).  otherwise pkgchk
will break.
