where and what to install

Is there some kind of spoken or unspoken guidelines as to where to
install files for your OTP application? I'm working on Yxa (a SIP
server/stack) and we have just simplified installation by making the
installation procedure generic (./configure && make && make install)
My question is, where should we install our application as default?
I looked at Yaws, which installs it's files in /usr/local/lib/yaws/ebin,
and ejabberd which installs it's files in /var/lib/ejabberd/ebin.
What should we install? The beam-files of course, but Yaws also seems to
install it's .hrl files, and both Yaws and ejabberd installs their .app
PS. I checked Yaws and eJabberd with 'make -n install', so I might have
gotten some parts wrong about where they install stuff, and what...
