Opensuse is building rpms of 1.1.1 so the build infrastructure isn't too badly
broken. I don't know if they are following FHS, but I doubt they use /opt.
The opensuse package/specfile can be found at:
The rpms including the source rpm can be downloaded from:
Note the specfile applies a patch to change the install aspect of the tarball
immediately after untar'ing it.
I don't maintain that so I don't know why the patch is needed.
