/etc and /usr/local/etc

As a relative FreeBSD newbie, I get confused between these two
directories. As I understand it, anything I install after the initial
installation will user /usr/local/. For example, I'm used to seeing
/etc/samba/smb.conf but now have to go for /usr/local/etc/smb.conf.
How do other people deal with this? Do you live with it because that's
the way it is. Do you change any parameters which make installed stuff
write to /etc instead, or perhaps create symlinks in /etc to point to
the real file in /usr/local/etc?
