Hi, John and all.

As a way to help keep things clean, if you're installing and maintaining
piece of software (i.e., not through your official package management
tools such as Yum/RPM on Fedora, Portage on Gentoo, et al.) then you
should be using /usr/local as the root for your hierarchy. E.g., program
binaries in /usr/local/bin, man pages in /usr/local/share/man,
configurations in /usr/local/etc, et al.)

Please see the FHS[1] for more information.

As an aside, Livna's repository contains the RAR tools as RPMs for easy
installation/maintenance.
