Why would you want to do that?  It's in a sense against the original
intent: Lisp files should only be natively-compiled when they are
first needed, and stored under the user's home directory.  Otherwise,
you will litter the system-wide directories with a lot of quite large
binary files, which doesn't seem to be a good idea.

It's not documented precisely because I'm not sure it should be.

I'd be interested to hear your motivation for using this possibility.
