add usr/local to checked paths

Would be nice to catch unhandled buildsystem PREFIX=/usr/local defaults.

Thanks

mgorny suggested to place the test inside 

   /usr/portage/metadata/install-qa-check.d

which I can agree. Users would still be able to write inside /usr/local using overlay ebuilds (for whatever reason).

dilfridge mentioned a coundcil debate about the security implications, rsync tree, no manifest.
