You can temporarily get around it by just going to Finder => Go => Go  
to folder . . .   and typing in /opt  - that will give you a finder  
window. There are ways to change the defaults for what is hidden and  
what isn't. If you want to change visibility permanently - give it a  
google. I think there are some apps which provide an easy interface  
for it. I just use shift-command-G which usually has /opt/local or  
~/.ssh already in it . . .
