close, but no cookie.
/usr/local is for locally compiled stuff where no packages are used
(sysadmin!). Also, these should adhere to the Unix standards for file
locations (binaries, libraries, config, etc)
/opt is for third-party stuff like closed-source software. The idea is to
let each such application have it's own hierarchie without cluttering the
rest of the system.
