90% of the time, you just have to reorganize the application 
installation directories to better suit the default settings.

for instance, all our java-ware can run just fine in 
/home/$APPUSER/$APPNAME and run as a regular user.   if we want to put 
it in /opt/$COMPANY/$APP  then we might have to play with selinux 
defaults some, since /opt isn't part of the RHEL mindset.
