  FHS - maybe.  If my memory is correct, the instructions for FHS 
compliance are in the book, but some of them might be phrased as 

  LSB - no.  The LSB is for providers of binary software, among other 
things it mandates RPM as a package manager, and a particular version of 
the c++ libraries.  No doubt you can build the necessary packages, and 
the specific version of gcc, to achieve compliance with a particular 
version of the LSB, but most people don't think that is worthwhile.
