It is why at the first place, I shifted to gentoo. When I install a
software myself, I first compile it and install it in /usr/local, but
this is just to see how the installation process work and its
dependencies. After that I remove it and do an ebuild. The result will
be the same, but with the same optimisations than the rest of the
system, and all the files, their dependencies and reverse
dependencies will be managed by portage.

If the software is audio related, I put it into the pro-audio overlay.
Otherwise, I do a bug report with the ebuild on the gentoo bugzilla
most of the times. Sometime I do both.

Sure, it will be better than on windows where every thing is
installed at the same place, that with no management of the
libraries, but idiotic questions that even a programmer cannot answer.
The users will be fine in most cases in the short run, but in the
long run, they will get in troubles.

This is the same problem with all the binary based distributions and
their additional repositories. More repositories you add, more troubles
you will get with broken deps when updating the system. And with files,
and maybe even libraries, installed into /usr/local, this is even
worst, because the system update will be fine, but the result will soon
or later be a broken system.
