Sorry for not elaborating in the first place.

Yes, it does still exist, as of version 0.16 it's just not installable
anymore (configure script/makefiles are gone).
It now comes as a tarball for the user to download and to untar
to any preferred place.

I'm the author of this thingy, and I decided to drop the considerable
overhead of maintaining autotools for all those files, which doesn't
provide much benefit to the user.
To the contrary, having it installed to a not user-writable place might
distract from the fact that this example-preset exists to (and often
even needs to) be customised.
