Its possible and I have done this but found it difficult
to keep straight what is where and ultimately found
it simpler to have all the packages in the distribution's
tree. As a result I went back to that simple setup.
The other problem with sharing them among distros
is the worry that updating them in a later version might break
them in an earlier version thus from a practical
viewpoint if you do that you may or may not be
able to continue to use the earlier version. If you
are not going to use the earlier version anyways I
think its simplest just to use movedir.bat which is
very fast and keeps the setup simple or copydir.bat
which also does not require downloading the packages
again but takes substantially longer since the packages
must be physically copied from one place to another
on your disk. If you are willing to reinstall them then
the suggestions of how to do that could be followed.
