It's more obvious to put local scripts in /usr/local/bin, IMHO.


Let me add to this (as someone who recently moved from linux to FreeBSD). Unlike Linux, FreeBSD isn't just a kernel, but a complete operating system. So the things in /bin and /usr/bin are as fully part of FreeBSD as the kernel itself, while on Linux distributions, those things are bundled with Linux as part of a distribution.

So this is one reason why it is best to put tools like you describe in

  /usr/local/sbin
