Pardon my probable misunderstanding, but isn't this the whole idea
of the standard filesystem layout for Unix/Unix-like operating systems?

I.e., if it's not installed through the system package manager, it has
its tree of /lib, /sbin, /bin, /man, /share, etc under /usr/local;
whereas if it *is* installed through the system packaging, it has its
own /lib, /sbin, /bin, /share, /man, etc layout tree under / or /usr,
depending on various factors like partitioning or network-mounting /usr,
