Wherever you install the plt tree, the place where you can find
bin/setup-plt, that's the directory that will be used to install .plt
files if you use the --at-plt option to mzc or the --all-users option
to setup-plt.  Otherwise, it is installed in the user's home
directory.  There is nowhere else that is searched (by default).
