This is the thing: `built locally'.  Normally, this is not true for
homebrew, since you download pre-compiled *packages* that don't
harmonize with, say, stuff built with `./configure; make; make
install'.  Homebrew wants absolute control over `/usr/local', and bad
things can happen if you install something without the `brew' program.
