I've made a wrapper script and a version file "v-2.54" to ensure that 
~/.blender exists and is correct for the version in order to cope with
the upgrade from 2.49b to 2.5x. It would be a nice feature for
distribution packagers if this was taken care of by blender itself
because the installation is done as root and there isn't a way to write
to the users home except via a wrapper. I don't quite understand your
statement "Blender now uses: .....", does this mean that blender does
take care of creating .blender and I can drop the wrapper script?
My latest cmake build attempts are failing on openCOLLADA, I copied the
static collada libs and includes to a lib and include dirs under the
root source dir but (I use cmake gui) atm the build can't find them
properly. I've decided to create an openCOLLADA package for openSUSE to
enable the use of shared libs anyway. The blender build including the
building of collada static libs takes far too long and packaging of
static libs is discouraged.
The blender-2.5x package is at :-
Any criticisms or comments appreciated.
