I do something along the same lines, but to ease removal of all
the files, I have a file named after the package in
/usr/local/share/manifest that contains a list of all the files in
the tar.  To remove the package, I do
rm -f `cat /usr/local/share/manifest/package_name`

This allows me to have a standardised package format on all
my platforms with minimal hassle.  Sure it is messy, but it works.

If you have any trouble sounding condescending,
find a Unix user to show you how it's done.
