Installation issues: library files marked as executable


When installing using the command:
@update.afni.binaries -package linux_ubuntu_16_64 -apsearch yes -bindir /opt/quarantine/afni

I find that the the *.so files dropped into /opt/quarantine/afni (why no lib dir?) are set executable (+x), which means when typing a command and attempting to use autocomplete in bash, those files will be suggested as a program which is runnable.

This is just gcc automatically setting those permissions, presumably since the ELF format used for shared objects is optionally executable.
We have not modified those permissions, but doing so would be reasonable. Maybe sometime soon…
