The above statement was wrong. I've checked and it seems that
/usr/share/gforge/src/ (and /usr/share/gforge/src/www, etc.) is indeed
the default now (why... that looks a bit weird to me... maybe to
accomodate the people running from SVN ?)

Still, on a production machine I had not such paths... so I don't know,
either this changed and some migration is missing in upgrade
scripts... or the result of my own customizations.

It looks like it is all good too with the packages rebuild out of branch
5.2 and that Debian bug #677380 was also a side effect of that paths

So it looks good to me, but of course further testing may not hurt.
