We *DO* currently use /usr/local for where to install things by default
(X stuff goes in /usr/X11R6, which may or may not be cool, depending on
your perspective).  However, I (and others, including David O'Brien)
think it's really a misnomer, because /usr/local should be reserved for
those things that TRULY are local to a machine.  After all, installed
packages may be shared across machines.
