I'll change this one if the pull request is merged.

Re not installing into /usr/local/:

src/ has

fn get_prefix() -> PathBuf {

I don't know rust, but it seems to me that some kind of PREFIX can be specified to change it, or not?

Thanks for the package, by the way!

also syngestures-git installs /usr/local/etc/syngestures.toml.

From the Arch Wiki:
"Packages should never be installed to /usr/local/"

If upstream has /usr/local/ hardcoded and cannot be fixed by build time configuration flags passed to the build system, I think you should try to patch the source & submit an issue upstream regarding hard coded /usr/local/, since it breaks rules for making distribution packages for almost any operating system.
