[Lazarus] Output directories

There is a problem when installing Lazarus through the package manager on
Linux, and when you try to install/recompile additional packages:

Error: (lazarus) unable to create package output directory "/usr/share/lazarus/2.2.4/components/fpweb/lib/x86_64-linux" of package "weblaz 1.0"

I suspect that the IDE tries to create the output directories of packages,
but of course it has no write permission in /usr/share.

Should this not be detected and the output put in ~/.local/share/lazarus/... instead ?
