   I believe the current concensus is that the /usr/local hierarchy is strictly
   for locally written and installed software only, i.e. not the place to put
   optional debian packages like term. Whether it should go in /usr/* or
   /usr/opt/* or /usr/contrib/* needs to be decided still.

Geez, just use /usr/*; let's keep this KISS (or is there a reason not to)?
