A few more (from Gentoo, but I guess this is distro independent):

Perl:      /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7
GCC:       /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.1.0
Qt:        /usr/qt/4
Ethereal:  /usr/lib/ethereal/plugins/0.10.14
Gimp:      /usr/lib/gimp/2.3
Openmotif: /usr/lib/openmotif-2.2
pppd:      /usr/lib/pppd/2.4.3
