comment Where should I put software I compile myself?
My suggestion to avoid /usr/local was based on the original poster's (somewhat vague) desire to not interfere with packaged software. Since there is plenty of packaged software that will "help" by looking in /usr/local or in $PATH, I figured that qualifies as interfering. But it really depends on a person's individual needs and goals. /usr/local can be a perfectly fine choice in many situations.
