Joe user will either install a pre-build package, or take a source
tarball and do the configure && make && make install.

Via either route, the exact files used and locations of files are not
known.  The user installs a package, Stuff Just Works. The user runs
"make install" in a tarball, everything is installed, Stuff Just Works.

Nobody expects the user to manually install the .server and .so file, as
that thinking means that we also expect them to compile C code manually
without using Makefiles.
