Debian packages, and packages distributed by any other Filesystem
Hierarchy Standard-compliant distribution, should never install files
into /usr/local. See:


It's rarely that difficult to substitute /usr/local with /usr in your
head, though I concede it can often be useful to build Apache yourself
anyway; perhaps you should have a look at the Debian package and see if
there's anything that could be improved so that this isn't necessary?
