Default /usr/local and application directories

I want to install the ABC commercial application on a FreeBSD system. The installation script of the packed kit wants to create the ABC application directory with its own structure (ABC/bin, ABC/var, ABC/etc, etc). Where should I tell the script to make that directory? I want to make that application available for all of the system users, so my home directory is not an option.

Does the "/usr/local/ABC" directory comply with the hier specifications?

Man hier says:
Within local/, the general layout sketched out by
hier for /usr should be used. Exceptions are the
man directory (directly under local/ rather than
under local/share/), ports documentation (in
share/doc/<port>/), and /usr/local/etc (mimics

There's no provision for "/usr/ABC" in hier, so "/usr/local/ABC" is illegitimate, too. Did I miss something?

So, where should I create my ABC/ directory?
