<binary arch="x86" libc="any" symlink="vegastrike">

-> setup searches 'vegastrike' in bin/Linux/x86/glibc-2.1/,
bin/Linux/x86/, bin/x86/glibc-2.1/, bin/x86/ and installs it into

<binary arch="x86" libc="any" symlink="vegastrike" keepdirs="yes">

-> searches 'vegastrike' in bin/Linux/x86/glibc-2.1/bin/,
bin/Linux/x86/bin/, bin/x86/glibc-2.1/bin/, bin/x86/bin/ and
installs it into /usr/local/games/vegastrike/bin/

<binary arch="x86" libc="any" symlink="vegastrike" binpath="bin/vegastrike" keepdirs="yes">

-> searches 'vegastrike' in bin/ and installs it into
