I'm not suggesting any one solution yet.  But clearly this has
been a frequent friction point.

An amazing number of people fail to see the leading period.  It is
beyond the previous experience of most newbies that are overconfident
they know how this should work.

My suggestion has been to do a normal gpsd install so that the
binarieris are in /usr/local.  Another common problem has been people
with three installed gpsd at the same time: /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin and
in their ~.
