We've had /usr/local on Sun boxes since I can remember (started using  
SunOS 2.x back in college) and administering 4.2BSD (not FreeBSD 4.2,  
but 4.2BSD from Berkeley) on vaxen 'round about 1986-ish and we had / 
usr/local for local (ie, not part of the base system) software.  In  
fact, it was actually a separate disk partition too.
