Installation directories

If you follow the manual, the files are installed into three directories independent of the architecture. The directory /opt/XSOXmetaX takes the files which may be shared between machines of same architecture, the directory /etc/opt/XSOXmetaX contains host specific files like license files, and the directory /var/opt/XSOXmetaX contains output files like log files.
