There is supposed to be /opt/bin, which is full of links to things in
/opt/kde/bin, /opt/gnome/bin, ...

The same sort of thing should happen for /opt/lib, /opt/man,
opt/info, ...

This way you should only have to add opt once for each thing like path,
instead of adding one entry for each package in path.
