Description of problem:

/usr/local is commonly used for locally built software and for NFS mounts. It 
would be better if /usr/local on RedHat and Fedora systems was just an empty 
directory. I even think that some packages supplied by RedHat actually try to 
install things there but I do not remember what.

I don't think that we do install _anything_ into /usr/local. If you find something, then please submit a 
bug against the specific package which does this. I'm closing this as NOTABUG because I don't beleive 
that there's anything which currently does this.
