It still should be a single path which points to a dir which should be
added to GRASS's search $PATH.

yes, g.extension is abusing it a bit using it like --prefix, but some
months ago g.extension was reworked with a hack so a symlink to the
executable made it into the real $GRASS_ADDON_PATH and not some support
dir beneath it.

it is far from ideal, but it should make it work.. at least when the
install is built from a local compile. not sure how well tested it is
outside of that (where Platform.make and friends need to point to the
installed dir not the build dir, which doesn't exist on the end-users'
