Comment(by hamish):

 latest g.extension from 6.5svn, built from source and 'make installed' to
 /usr/local/ on linux:

 ERROR: Compilation failed, sorry. Please check above error messages.

 the problem is that the end-user doesn't have write permission to

 the goal is for the addon to compile in the .tmp/ dir where the source
 code was downloaded, then be installed to the ~user/$ADDON_DIR later on.
 but the current `make` request is trying to install it to (what we've
 tricked it into thinking is) the build dir.

 I'm not sure how to proceed; hopefully something can be passed on the
 `make` command line to avoid this.

 It works ok if grass was built from source (and that source tree still
 exists, user can write to it, etc).
