it's the global folder for locally installed externals (as opposed to
system-installed externals).

fix your makefile to install into that folder on linux (and *please*
make it overridable). the Makefile.pdlibbuilder already does that for your.
so you only have to run `make install` with the proper permissions.
(and before you ask: yes, it is a *feature* that you are required to
show supercow powers if you want to throws things into the faces of all
users on the system)
