Barry, you've solved my problem! All I have to do is take a peek inside
the DESTDIR now and just remove everything's equivalent in /usr.
Speaking of which, most of my stuff installs to /usr when I use
packages, but /usr/local when I use install targets for make. Why is
that? What is the difference between local and it's parent?
