On second thought, if you really want to do this, I won't object.
However, I think this just works around the problem. I think we need to
figure out how to handle this. We won't always want to suck everything
into the standard build.

I don't really see what's wrong with $HOME. Granted, you don't get to
share the compiled stuff between users, but that doesn't seem so bad to
me. I may not even want to use someone else's compiled version anyway.
Maybe I don't trust them. :-)
