Since you're already looking in the Makefile, you should see this for the
@if test -d $(DESTDIR)$(schemadir) ; then \
echo "MOVING EXISTING SCHEMA DIR to $(DESTDIR)$(schemadir).$$$$" ; \
mv $(DESTDIR)$(schemadir) $(DESTDIR)$(schemadir).$$$$ ; \
The existing schema directory is simply renamed / moved out of the way. If you
had any custom schema files stored there, they are still there.
This ITS will be closed.
