Not to forget stow(8):
$ apt-cache show stow
Maintainer: Guillaume Morin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Description: Organiser for /usr/local/ hierarchy
GNU Stow helps the system administrator organise files under /usr/local/
by allowing each piece of software to be installed in its own tree under
/usr/local/stow/, and then using symlinks to create the illusion that
all the software is installed in the same place.
I'm using it happily for years on various systems.
