--- Comment #1 from Mark Thomas <markt@apache.org> 2011-10-25 16:53:12 UTC ---
I am resolving this as WONTFIX for a variety of reasons. In no particular
order:

1. The default has been /usr/share/java for as long as I can remember and this
is the first time an issue has been raised. I conclude from that that this is
not an issue for the vast majority of folks.

2. Any change will break things for folks that are happily using the default.

3. The build process only ever adds to that location . It does not delete or
replace existing files. That greatly reduces the chances of any harm being
done.

4. It is configurable so folks that don't like the default can easily change
it.
