Nope. Heck, it doesn't make any difference to me where the default directory is. Apache's default is under /usr/local, and a number of my (personally written make-life-easier) utilities are in various other subdirectories in that location. qmail, OTOH, is way over yonder it /var, and still other programs use other places as their
defaults, and in each case the programmer(s) decided that that place was "THE right place." I'm easy. And I haven't lost a piece of software yet. (Not since I lost my first downloaded file, lo these many years ago...)
