I usually install R somewhere off my home directory because it saves me the trouble of having to become root and install somewhere in the system. I'm the only person who uses the system anyway.

I have built and installed R from source, and also installed from RPMs (SuSE). I am wondering where in the file system experienced users of R and Linux typically install R. Are there any conventions, or any reasons to choose one location over another? I know that this is, strictly speaking, not an R question but I thought I might ask here for guidance that might help me organize things for ease of use and maintenance, upgrading of packages etc. Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
