[aur-general] Cross-compiler that installs in non-standard directories

Hi all.

I've never seen an official cross-compiler package in arch, so I'm not
sure if I'm breaking some rule here.
I'm going to release to [community] in a short time a set of packages
(binutils-avr, gcc-avr and avr-libc) which previously installed in
/opt/avr. According to the guidelines I moved everything to /usr, but
a couple non-standard directories are created. One is
/usr/i686-pc-linux-gnu, which should be fine, the other is /usr/avr,
which contains its own lib and include directories.
Obviously namcap complains, but this directory structure solves some
conflicts: for example /usr/avr/include/ctype.h would overwrite

Should I go for it?
