Can I use dpkg -i to install in /usr/local or /opt?


the subject says it all.  Can I (or maybe even a user w/o
root privileges) install a .deb in a safe place?  Of course,
this would not work for daemons or libc, but it would be
very useful for some tools and libs.  It would be very sad
to not have all the power of Debians dpkg/apt if it comes
to local installation!  But I didn't see anything about it
in the manual pages - did I miss it?

Thanks in advance!  Bye,
W. Borgert <debacle@debian.org>
