I didn't look at the PKGBUILD but when it's in /opt you can ignore it.
In fact you should.
Quotation from FHS 2.3:

No other package files may exist outside the /opt, /var/opt, and
/etc/opt hierarchies except for those package files that must reside
in specific locations within the filesystem tree in order to function
properly. For example, device lock files must be placed in /var/lock
and devices must be located in /dev.

However putting symlink or shellscript which will run the application
to /usr/bin is a good idea.
