From the look of it, third party software uses this folder for frameworks but I can't quickly see a definitive answer on the Apple Developer site.

Why not build it with MacPorts, and put it in ${frameworks_dir}?

We usually discourage users from putting things in /Library/Frameworks (that is, we actively encourage them to remove things from there) because ports might opportunistically use them, just ports might opportunistically use libraries in /usr/local.
