My opinion is that this belongs in the same place as the rest of the SAP
packages.  For example, the Adobe flash plugin is in multimedia, even
though it sets EMUL_PLATFORM and uses the emualtion framework.

I would guess misc or databases for most sap stuff.  The RPC toolkit in
devel seems fine, although I'd keep it all together.

SAP is large and complicated, it seems, so it might be helpful for you
to post to tech-pkg the plan of what packages you are going to import,
where they are going to go, and how you are going to handle any
difficult issues.
