Please pardon the late reply, I'll test stow later. I'll have to get a good 
understanding of how simlinks work tough.

As to the local installations, where exactly is gmsh searching for the .so 
files then? 

I can confirm the existence of the libTKSTEP files in the /usr/local/lib 
folder, i'll see if I can get CMake to link to that folder in the meantime.
