I don't want to start a debate here, but I would like to express my agreement
with Raman on this point.

The major exception is where a package management system is tracking all of
those files and holds the responsibility for their subsequent removal, but in
that case, deciding where files belong in the hierarchy is the task of the
package maintainer, guided by the policies of the operating system

I've wasted too much time cleaning up the results of "make install", and these
days I install from packages as a matter of preference. Emacspeak is under
$HOME anyway, in my case.
