This is a bug - everything should always install into LOCAL
unless told otherwise.

We now fully support FHS which means that anything installing
into SYSTEM could be overwriting system stuff in /usr/bin,
/usr/lib, etc.  Obviously any source tarball should not do
that and install politely install itself into LOCAL (which
becomes /usr/local on FHS) unless told otherwise.

Packagers will obviously install everything into SYSTEM, but
that's their responsibility.
