I am slowly integrating pypy into FreeBSD Port's Collection, with the eventual
goal of installing third party python based ports (i.e. setup.py and such).
FreeBSD follows a standard (I think) posix directory layout. As such I wanted
the pypy binary to live in $PREFIX/bin and the libraries in $PREFIX/lib.
The convention for cPython is to have the libraries as $PREFIX/lib/python2.7,
so for pypy I wanted to have $PREFIX/lib/pypy1.9 (although I did consider
$PREFIX/lib/pypython2.7), which leaves the lib_pypy libraries. These cannot
be renamed to anything such as pypy1.9 so I stuck them within the standard
libraries directory. A condition for this is the libraries cannot conflict
Previously I had an explicit directory $PREFIX/pypy-1.9 where I had all the
files (including the binary) with sym-links for the binaries to $PREFIX/bin.
This, however, I considered less clean.
