That's how it was handled up to now, installed to /usr/share.
I'd have to find a way to install an entire directory tree, including lots
of files and some empty dirs, without maintaining Makefile.am's and
such for every dir.
Maybe I'm missing something and there's a simple way to recursively
install a directory tree. Despite using google and reading quite a few
docs on make and autools I didn't find a simple solution. Pointers
are welcome.
Installing it to /usr/share as a packed tarball would not give any
benefit IMHO.

This is sort of an upstream issue. As things are now, I see no way to
easily have it installed. If this changes in the future, I'll upload a new
package; for now I suggest it be deleted.
