No. This is not done on *BSD systems. The correct way is to make a 
.fpc.cfg.sample, and require root to install it explicitely.

Anything that is dangerous for root, should be explicitely done by root,
never by an automated system.

/opt is a typical one. It is listed in the System V hier iirc.

You'll also want /usr/local/lib btw.
