definitely not.
the default bath is either: /usr/local/bin (for the binaries) and
/usr/local/lib/pd (for the rest) OR /usr/bin + /usr/lib/pd

/usr/local is usually used for installing things manually (e.g. if you
build Pd yourself and run "make install") and is therefore the default,
whereas /usr is normally reserved for your package management system.

alternatively, you could just install the "puredata" package.
(at least in Debian there is a package for pd-vanilla 0.44.3)
