  That's good advice for pretty much everything: /usr is your base 
installation, if you never touch it and always work in /usr/local, and have
/usr/local nearer the front of your various paths and lib settings, then no
matter how much damage you do you've always got a working system to fall
back on by just removing /usr/local from the paths; one of the downsides of
dynamic linking is that if you break your dynamically-linked libc, all of
a sudden none of your OS commands will load and link, so you can't run any
commands to try and fix the problem....
