XNVIEWMP installing properly

got a question now what is the proper place to drop each part of XnViewMP in slackware so it complies with proper edicate not so much this specific program but thought this be a good example to explain what goes where to follow along for my future reference as well.

such as binaries to /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin

or libs to /usr/local/libs

I thought someone who is using it might have the breakdown.

Looks like XnViewMP is a compiled binary. I would put it under /opt, but it is really up to you where you want it to go.
