do something vaguely like revert 13e70aa7 ?

There were four cases in recently.
1) if GPSD_HOME is a set environment variable try finding the library there.
2) check if libgpsdpacket is in a location where Python can find it.
3) check ancestor directories for libgpsdpacket
4) check id is under @PREFIX@ then look in @LIBDIR@ (redacted)

the intent was:
1 would handle scons check,
2 would handle distro installs,
3 would handle non-scons in-tree gpscat and gpsfake cases, and
4 would handle developer installs.

realistically 3 is overzealous and could probably be clipped
to a few ancestors but I do not want to handle the corners.
