Ok, that makes sense. I overlooked the man pages.

I use /usr/opt instead of /opt. I use /usr/local for things that are
local additions to the system, as opposed to things that are gotten
through freebsd. They have different update & backup policies, which
is why they were separated. Ports got moved instead of local because
ports has a mechanism for moving them, whereas local things may or may
not have that.
