That's pretty much how things are for me on OpenBSD. Ports and packages go into /usr/local.

For applications that are compiled by hand, I put those in /software, which is a convention that I started some time ago after I ran across some software that defaulted to using /opt (cdrtools, IIRC). I know some people will be horrified by this, as it's not the norm, but that's how I prefer it.
