you can't do that because the user generated scenarios/campaigns are changing
too much.

And the installing method from within wesnoth works fine - so what is the
problem? The additional stuff is not that big.

Why is that a problem?

It will be stored in the users homes, possibly ending up in multiple copies of
the same stuff, but eventually with different versions. So I'd prefer a
clean, systemwide installation.

how do you make ebuilds for something that gets replaced on an absolutly
random basis with no old versions?

the clean 'system wide' installation does not work, because the scenarios
might override stuff. Putting them into home makes the whole thing clean in
the first place.
