Afaik - the biggest trouble we have is related to the fact that $OC_SERVERROOT is created based upon
the php file location within the files system.
Because we install the code into /usr/share/owncloud but have the apache working on /var/lib/owncloud,
we get e.g. config directory pointing to /usr/share/owncloud/config.
For now it seems to work - but I'm not 100% sure we got all code pieces patched:
Maybe we can elaborate on that in the next week until oc5.

Ah - interesting. Can you please point be to the required patches?
Afaik - the Debian maintainer of mdb2* has a good relationship with upstream, maybe Debian can support OC
on this topic.
