Odd 'homebrew' package management system?

 So I've been running an LFS system for some months now, and have been 
considering creating a /usr/installed directory, wherein all new programs get 
installed, and then symlinked to the appropriate places (i.e., everything in 
/usr/installed/(program)/bin gets symlinked to /usr/bin, etc.), as a simple 
package management system in lieu of things like RPM or apt-get...would there 
be any problems that anyone can think of in doing this?  It seems to me that 
as long as the symlinks point to the right places, everything should work out 
fine...any comments?  Am I nuts? =)
