I come from a linux background. I am used to using /usr/local/bin for applications
compiled on the machine or for shell scripts.
I note that /usr/local/bin is in my env path, but it doesn't exist. Would there
be any issues if I were to create it?
thanks

You can create it and add it to your profile path. I have many little sub directories...

MacGyver:/usr/local <username>$ ls
bin clamXav include lib sbin share

Or, you can use /usr/bin

MacGyver:/usr dcram$ ls
X11 bin include libexec local share
X11R6 etc lib llvm-gcc-4.2 sbin standalone
