the FHS to make good assumptions about where things are. I've heard all
manner of arguments for why they have to do it this way and have never
seen one be right.

Does a file conflict with OS-packaged libldap count
as sufficient argument?

Nobody puts stuff in /opt for fun. Sadly, I do it more than I want to
as well, which is why I know how to do it...
