Really ? Package managers don't care about /usr/local and will never
touch it. It's a completely separate world. It exists just for that
They *do* care about /usr/bin and /usr/lib. Managing those dirs (and
some others) is why package managers exist in the first place. Because
in all except the most trivial cases, installing an app and making sure
it works will involve a bit more than putting a binary in /usr/bin.

Oh dear. Such naivity is really touching...
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
