A lot of extensions have the option of installing globally or in a
user's home directory. It's a shame the search plugins don't. In fact, I
think I'm going to go file a bug.
In the meantime, though, I guess you could try grabbing
http://mycroft.mozdev.org/plugins/googleAU.src and putting that in a
searchplugins directory under your homedir.
Er, read that as "under your local firefox dir". Or somesuch.
