This depends a lot on the personal preference of the user. Some users like to keep such packages in /opt (optional), or /usr/local (packages that are not part of the distribution), others prefer to keep it in the home directory, for example /home/tux/applications/qcad or /home/tux/opt. Note that QCad does not spread its files around the file system like you might be used to from other Linux applications.
