In FreeBSD the movie cannot/shouldn't be installed in /usr/share/ and
that's why I want to change the hardcoded default (/usr/share) at
compile time. One possible way is to create a simple patch that does
change /usr/share/ to whatever it should be. And then this patch will be
applied everytime a user wants to compile XaraLX via the FreeBSD port.
It's just the burden that I am trying to avoid to support this patch
when the source evolves.

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.
