Re: The default $fpath

To satisfy the original request, it'd have to be both additional, and
a fixed location independent of the locations chosen by the package
builder.  I'm not sure it's possible to satisfy the latter constraint.

As Frank pointed out, configure already has --enable-additional-fpath
which adds locations to the end of the path.  One possibility is to
declare a default value for that.

Or we could do the very zsh-ish thing of inventing TWO such locations
and putting one at each end of the fpath.

} functions are to be available to all instances of zsh.

Shouldn't we document that already/anyway?  That is after all the first
directory in the existing default fpath.

(Given that, it would seem we already have a location at the beginning
of the path and if we need anything we need one at the other end.)
