It's too messy and pointless in my opinion. I'm in the habit of simply running VDR from it's source dir and using symlinks. It makes things very easy like archiving working/test sources, changing between versions without any needless 'reinstall'ing, etc. I see no benefit what-so-ever to installing over running VDR from the source dir, unless of course you're using pre-compiled binaries.
I do not think that you would do this with your entire Linux system.... ;-) Before the file hierarchy standard, Linux was a bit messy. Nowadays oneknows where to find things. Configuration for example in /etc - a no brainer.
It makes life much easier, e.g. when backing up the system's configuration. You can (guessed) most probably still start your VDR with the directories given as commandline arguments. Sure, this means some custom script for you. But the FHS helps many other people.
