Since trinity is not installed by default in a lot of distros, onw should place that sofware into /usr/local What will you do when it is or how is distros supposed to pick it up if it won't work when installed into /usr? Installation into /usr _should_ be the goal not playing with installation into /opt. Any way it's not an issue with me as I will continue on.....onward on my own path installing into /usr/local, since it is your way or no way. /usr/local simplifes the install and keeps it separate from the distro stuff (Arch soon to be my own scratch built ) and does not interfere with QT4 and KDE4 and without all the mumbo jumbo associated with the install into /opt. The build goes better and the install goes better.
