Yes -- funny thing is how now everyone on that Issue is saying what a 
great idea that is,  that they found /usr/local was not a good place for 
homebrew as all kinds of other software was writing into there, etc, 
etc, etc


Now they are scrambling to figure out how to make everything like cmake, 
etc, work with non-default prefixes.

Ah -- the fun just begins.
