Adding ~/.local/bin to the PATH is common on other distros.  When
compiling and installing software as a user without making a package
for it, I want to configure it with --prefix=$HOME/.local so I can
install without sudo.  Then I want to be able to run:


instead of

PATH=$HOME/.local/bin myprog

In particular, I want instructions to work on all distros, even though
Debian failed/fails to do this at the moment too.
