There are some difference anyway, /usr/local is for local group access
and /opt can be made globally sharable,
but besides that are there any factors more important which can tell me
which should be my dest dir when I install some program?
usually, I keep it the following way:
for manually configured/compiled standard applications/tools
special programs used for particular projects, globally accesible
for alien softwares as acrobatreader, maple, mathematica, ...
