[Slackbuilds-users] Postgresql default data dir

I note that using the SBo script, the default data dir for PostgreSQL is 
set under /usr/share. The default PostgreSQL data dir (if not set) is 
under /usr/local. I always thought that the aim is to have 
non-changeable files under /usr (or rarely changeable). Even Gentoo and 
Ubuntu have it under /var/lib. I was wondering if the SBo script 
shouldn't attempt to follow the same sane path and have it under 
something like /var/lib or /srv or something?
