To suffix something to what Ryan already said; this may have changed,
but last time I looked, loki setup was only really conducive to a
miniscule subsection of the LSB's overall FHS packaging attitude,
specifically the stuff to do with /opt/<packagename> :


Loki setup is never and has never been a packaging system that would
function well within the restrictions of the FHS, at least as I
understand the FHS and Loki Setup.
