If it were to be installed in custom directory, I found out that a kind of isolation is the best approach. I use /opt/custom and compile/install in /opt/custom/<application> Then I add to the global or users PATH /opt/custom/<application>/bin I also found out that creating /opt/custom/<application> and chown to a users and compiling/installing with that user prevents from broken installers. The method never failed, although in recent years I have reduced the applications there to absolute minimum in favor to debian packages.
