You can change the permissions on the original directories, but then the next time you upgrade gEDA your custom symbols will be overwritten.

I usually make custom copies of most symbols a project uses. A command line like:

locate .sym | grep -i lm317

finds every variant of lm317 on my system, not just from the common library but also from previous projects and my local copy of the gedasymbols tree. I can then copy that to my current project's symbol directory and customize if needed.
