Looking at wxOil/menucmds.cpp I see that the path where the .ogm movie
is expected to be is hardcoded. So I tried to invent something to be
able to configure this path at compile time. One possible way to do
this is to use this patch:

The movie code is actively being developed at the moment, so it's best to ignore the state it's in. Also as Alex mentioned it's using binreloc, so there shouldn't be any need to configure the path. Having said that I'd like to hear why you felt that it does need configuring, so I can make sure that it covers your needs.

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.

Where should it be installed? Also can you give me a reference to the document where these standard directories are defined. The only reference I could find suggested /usr/share is the correct place (see http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook/dads-subdirs.html, FreeBSD Porter's Handbook, 12. Dos and Don'ts, 12.10 Subdirectories).
