The paths in the documentation always refer to the directory hierarchy 
in the source tarball but the in the installation script the 
dokumentation and examples where manually put elsewhere in /usr/share, 
while binaries where put to /usr/bin. This way also the example scripts 
where broken. Still this was more of a personal problem.

This problem is also resolved by simply putting the missing tarballs to

The packaging is fine if one is familiar with it. Yet it lacks a simple 
deployment, like
     $ .configure --prefix=$PREFIX ; make ; make install
As far as I know with the install target, all executables are copied to 
'$PREFIX/'. I think it would be beneficial to fully utilize the install 
target i.e. install executables to $PREFIX/bin and documentation (and 
examples) to $PREFIX/usr/share/espresso.
