If you are rolling your own packages (using sources from official SVN
or official stable) then you can specify where you want your installs
to go (I believe default is /usr/local).  If you are using deb's or
something similar (not your own packages) and they are all from the
same source, they should also be installing the same location.  If
this is not the case, you are far better off contacting the maintainer
of these packages to let them know of their 'error'.
