Maybe it should be easier to customize.  As you can see from the
comment in the file, it seems that everyone wants different triangles.

You can look at it both ways, depending on what you want.  I'd say
it's a bug, but it won't be fixed any time soon.  You can try:

    export GUILE_LOAD_PATH=`pwd`

but lilypond may well still use the installed .scm file.
