Not really.  The recommended procedure would be to place it under 
/usr/local, and not in the non-local directory structure.

I don't think so, as long as ntex will happily live in /usr/local.  
Debian does have a TeX distribution which I at least have been very 
happy with.  What are the differences/advantages of ntex?
