[aur-general] Package proprietary softwares with hard-coded paths within /usr/local?

Hello Arch enthusiasts,
I'd like to create a package for Pulse Connect Secure, a popular VPN
software. Current PKGBUILD can be found at . That package works
fine, but it conflicts with Arch's packaging guideline. 
"Packages should never be installed to /usr/local"
The reason I put files in /usr/local is that file paths are apparently
hard-coded. Specifically, the VPN frontend (pulseUi) loads assets from
/usr/local/pulse/html, and then it invokes /usr/local/pulse/pulsesvc
to actually connects to VPN.
Is there a workaround for this?
