The way it's done for the webmail packages in our tree (squirrelmail and
horde/imp) is that we install under ${PREFIX}/share, and by default assume
that the web server is cool enough that it can remap parts of the filesystem
to be part of it's document tree.  This pretty much assumes apache.  If
another web server is used, then the files would need to be copied to it's
document root, and the config files editted.  I tried thinking of a general
solution, but it was too hard.
