Note that the basedir spec has two different environment variables for
system versus user data directories.

Maybe it should just look at $XDG_DATA_DIRS (the system datadir path)
and not $XDG_DATA_HOME  (the user datadir path)?

I guess there may be some advantage to looking in /usr/local/share for
tarball installed things? I don't know that it really matters, though.
