Put the things _you_ put in /opt/ instead in /usr/local/, make /usr/local/ a
separate filesystem, and you needn't have that problem, unless maybe you're an
AntiX user. The only things in /opt/ on my systems are things the package
manager decides belong there, typically printer drivers, KDE3, or LO.
