Bitcoin Qt Debian Install - FEDEC

PSA regarding the "Heartbleed" bug (CVE-2014-0160) and Bitcoin Core

There are exactly two places in Bitcoin Core that may be affected by this issue.
One is RPC SSL. If you're using this, turn it off. If you don't know what that is, you most likely aren't using it.
The other is the payment protocol. Specifically, fetching payment requests. If you're using a vulnerable version, do not click any bitcoin: links and you will be protected. Note that this is only relevant for the GUI, and only for version 0.9.0.
If you're using self-built executables, you're most likely using dynamically linked OpenSSL. Simply upgrade your OpenSSL package and you should be fine. If I'm not mistaken, the same applies if you're using the PPA. If you're using release binaries, a version 0.9.1 is being prepared that will use the fixed OpenSSL 1.0.1g.
Note that if you're running the GUI (p.k.a. Bitcoin-Qt) you can check your OpenSSL version in the debug window's information tab. If you're on anything earlier than 1.0.1, for example 0.9.8, you're safe. If you're on 1.0.1g or later, you're safe. If you're on 1.0.1-1.0.1e, you may be vulnerable. However, that may not necessarily be the case -- for example, Debian has released an update for Wheezy, version 1.0.1e-2+deb7u5, which fixes the security bug without bumping the version number as reported by OpenSSL.

Installing software outside of the package manager

Hello all.
I've recently taken an interest in Bitcoins (/bitcoins), and so I've naturally decided to try them out using Bitcoin's own bitcoin-qt wallet software. Unfortunately, debian-qt only appears to be available in the sid (unstable) repositories and I'm running wheezy (stable), so I've had to download the binaries from bitcoin.org and work it out from there.
I've pretty much got everything working, but I'm not sure if there's a preferred standard way to do what I'm doing. I have done a fair bit of research, and it has lead me to believe that /opt or /uslocal is the best place to home user installed programs.
Pretty much, the steps I've taken so far are: 1. Download the tarball from bitcoin.org. 2. Verify it to make sure it's authentic and all that jazz. 3. Extract it (which leaves me with a directory called bitcoin-0.8.6-linux). 4. Find the 64 bit binaries in bitcoin-0.8.6-linux (which are located at bitcoin-0.8.6-linux/bin/64/) and copy them to /uslocal/bin.
That's what I've done as far as installation goes. I have, of course, set up a menu in the application menu for XFCE that leads to the bitcoin-qt executable that's in /uslocal/bin, but other than that, that's all. One issue that is remaining is that in the applications menu, the application for the bitcoin wallet has no icon. Now, I know how to implement icons, but I'm not sure where the standard place for housing icons/pngs is on debian/linux systems, so I haven't bothered yet.
So, my main question is: have I done this right? Is this the standard way to do things, as far as installing outside of the package manager goes?
All of the software I have previously installed has been through the package manager, so this is new territory to me. I'd love to hear your advice -- thank you for reading. :)
