This is the reason why I chose spec files.

You can redefine paths here ....
https://svn2.cvsdude.com/kdesolaris/trunk/SPECS/include/paths.inc a
then you can build all spec files with new (your defined) paths.

Here is snap from libotf.spec

# spec file for package FOSSlibotf
# includes module(s): libotf	
%include paths.inc
%include libotf_flags.inc

..... cuted ....

%define _prefix %{_foss_prefix}

...  cuted ....

./configure	--prefix=%{_prefix} --with-x --x-includes=/usr/X11/include

And if look into paths.inc then you can see ...

... cuted ...

%define _foss_prefix /opt/foss

... cuted ...

If you change %define _foss_prefix to /opt/kdesupport, everything goes
to /opt/kdesupport. It's easy.

Stdcxx could be under /opt/kdesupport/ too.


As I said paths can be changed generally from one place.

Have a nice day
