[vbox-dev] integrating virtualbox better into a linux system

are there any plans to integrate virtualbox better into a (linux) system?

At the moment everything has to be installed into one dir (for instance
/opt/vbox) otherwise it doesn't work because it expects that everything (well
at least the most of the xpcom stuff) exists in the same dir in which the
binary is lying. This makes it impossible to install the binaries
to /usr/bin, the xpcom stuff and libs to /usr/lib/vbox for instance.

So is there a chance to get rid of this behaviour (e.g. using autotools?;) ).
(I'm also willing to help).
