Can the file system hierarchy standard help here?

The same sort of folks who were involved in developing this standard could help with an architecture rules specification format. GNU does not strictly follow the FHS although it allows it to be supported.

What will the least common denominator look like?

Probably some release of Debian Linux. :-)

The specification file would need to address OS installed files and be able to specify the rules to use for any particular directory heirarchy.

Up to now, I have not heard of any efforts to normalize architecture-specific installation or to come up with a specification format to describe it.

There are a huge number of options available. For example, some base architectures support may variants and it is useful to support sets of variants which provide broader portability or better performance on particular CPUs. There are also various debug and profiling library formats.
