It is OK as long as you do not run into troubles.  /usr/local/lib
should be fine.  But separate installation directories are frequently
used to prevent interference between incompatible software.  If
you have incompatible /foo/lib/libaz.so and /bar/lib/libbaz.so
and you add both /foo/lib and /bar/lib to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, then
you may expect troubles.
