Summary0006330: Install into ~/.spring/engine when compiling from source
DescriptionAll instructions for compiling I found:

* https://github.com/spring/spring/blob/develop/README.markdown
* https://springrts.com/wiki/Building_Spring_on_Linux#Build_And_Install

suggest `make install` or `make install-spring` when installing the engine after a build from source.

In this way however, spring gets installed in `/usr/local` by default,
and thus is not available in SpringLobby, for example, as it expects engines in `~/.spring/engine/${git describe --always --tags}`.

I would suggest to either update the instructions in these locations, or change the default behavior to install to where the lobby picks up the engine, or at least offer alternative instructions for doing that.

Engine wiki already suggests you can specify the install location with
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/spring .

You are free to further improve the wiki, but I consider this issue resolved
