Not better necessarily, but what the standard suggests. But let’s follow it and 
put it into /opt/lilypond/.

The standard explicitly says it should not be there, but in /opt/. Also, 
MacPorts is in /opt/local/ but should have been in /opt/macports/, as it 
suggests /opt≮provider>/<package>.

But on the hand, I have never seen anything installing in /opt/ besides 
MacPorts on MacOS. And also packages are put in /usr/local/.
