We should define a place where to put all this stuff. I started normalizing 
the xml files so that everything is under one subdirectory (/home/mapnik/*). 
This makes installing mapnik easier. If you have it on your machine installed 
in another directory or as another user, you should change /home/mapnik to 
your directory. But now it's only one substitute command and not 10 different 
substitutes like before. This is part one. 
The other part is that we should define a place where everyone can get the 
most detailed and newest vmap0 data. What about putting it into svn? this 
would make installing mapnik easier, because it would save another download 
and everyone could work  on improving the current vmap0 data (If ever needed 
So I would suggest to put it in the directory 
and adjust the directorynames in the xml File.
