change application install location if not root on macOS

Taylor Hanayik requested to merge non-root-install into master

As of FSL 6.0.4 when a non-admin macOS user installs FSL to a directory in their home folder (to avoid asking an admin for help), they are still asked to supply an admin password to copy to /Applications.

This MR changes the default location to copy to. The new location is $HOME/Applications, which does not require admin rights. If someone installs FSL as root (sudo python then is copied to /Applications as before since they explicitly ran things as an admin.
