Where to install application A?


I'm developing an application for KDE, and I was wondering... Where should I install it? I mean, when the user runs 'make install', where should I send the files to?

I have an executable (KFortune) a symlink (kfortune) and a bunch of files used by the executable, not to mention some help html's.

Where should all these files go to?

just let make install it to the system defaults, which will most probably be /usr/local/bin for the binary

Ok. I agree that the binary should be in /usr/local/bin. But where should I put the rest of the files? Should I make a /usr/local/share/kfortune where to dump all the other files?
