/usr/share: Architecture-independent (shared) data.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard

I have 351 directories of foo under /usr/share

/usr/local is for stuff I build myself.  I didn't, I installed the 
"official" debian package.

/opt is for optional.   Good for whole self contained self-downloaded 
packages.  Like /opt/eclipse and /opt/Qt.


I'm curious, on your slackware system, where do your *.vim files live? 
(like filetype.vim)  The povray %INSTALLDIR% is a cousin of that.
