if i use install-xpi for packaging xul extensions i got a lintian error at the
final package. All jars will installed at /usr/lib/xul-ext/<package>/...

I'm not sure witch is the really correct place will be but something seems to
be "wrong".

For example:
sascha at kang:/var/cache/pbuilder/sid/result$ lintian xul-ext-
W: xul-ext-firetray: jar-not-in-usr-share usr/lib/xul-
sascha at kang:/var/cache/pbuilder/sid/result$ lintian-info -t  jar-not-in-usr-
N: jar-not-in-usr-share
N:   The classpath listed in some of the files references files outside of
N:   /usr/share, while all installed JAR files must be within
N:   /usr/share/java for libraries or /usr/share/<package> for JARs for
N:   private use.
N:   The rationale is that jar files are in almost all cases architecture
N:   independent and therefore should be in /usr/share. If the jar file is
N:   truly architecture dependent or it cannot be moved since symlinked jar
N:   files are not accepted by the application, then please override this
N:   tag.
N:   Refer to Debian Java Policy section 2.2 (Debian Java Policy) and
N:   Debian Java Policy section 2.3 (Debian Java Policy) for details.
N:   Severity: normal, Certainty: possible
N:   Check: java, Type: binary
