We use /opt for that purpose, as suggested by Solaris filesystem(5):
/opt Root of a subtree for add-on application packages.
Update To expand on that, we build our own perl and install it under /opt/perl/5.x.x with judicious symlinks so:
/opt/local/bin/perl -> ../../perl/5.8.8/bin/perl /opt/local/perl/bin -> ../../perl/5.8.8/bin /opt/local/perl/man -> ../../perl/5.8.8/man
We use #!/opt/local/bin/perl as the shebang line in our Perl programs, and add /opt/local/perl/bin to PATH and /opt/local/perl/man to MANPATH. We can then upgrade perl simply by tweaking those three symlinks. Worked fine for the last upgrade.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
