That is how it worked previously, but there has been a push to move things 
into /usr, where it rightfully belongs (some anyway).

David Comay is working to get things moved from /usr/sfw to /usr, and it 
is my understanding that Indiana will have packages in /usr as well.

Ultimately, KDE should be installed to /usr, which is how things work in 
the Linux world. Not that it is right, but the software should be located 
there, IMO, as it would on any system.

Look at GNOME, Sun sticks it in /usr/.
