One remark regarding the paths:

I really think it should be ${PREFIX}/share/XaraLX/examples.

On Linux since quite some while this is /usr/share/man/man*/ according
to the File Hierarchy Standard. Before it was /usr/man/man*/, which one
finds still on commercial unices. (Debian Woody packages put man pages
at /usr/share/man, but creates symbolic links from /usr/man/man*/package
to /usr/share/man/...; all other distributions don't have /usr/man anymore.)
For /usr/local, /usr/local/man was required, the new FHS 2.3 requires
that /usr/local/share/man/ exists as well (symlink).

I think it only works at /usr/share/applications/ and not at
/usr/local/*, but putting it outside of $PREFIX is also not the right
thing to do. (Maybe it works also at /usr/local.)

Side question: I wonder what happened to README.de and de/XaraLX.1? I
cannot find them in svn.
Well, in any case they should end up at
