XFree86 doesn't stomp on /usr/local (nor does the other port semi-
automatically installed via sysinstall, linux_base).

As part of the process of packaging the base system, I support the
idea of a new type of more tightly integrated package, installed in
/usr (for the core packages) or /usr/{opt,pkg,contrib}.  "ports"
would remain as they are, though (seems too late to reclaim
/usr/local if you ever want to use those...).
