Let me ask, what are you trying to install?

Is that a third party software or native OS software?

To the best of my knowledge NO,
More over '/usr' contains the executable files. Probably it will install in '/usr/bin'.

Unless it is not asking you for installation path (like an application or DB), do not try to change the location.
