Put it in /usr/share/drush/commands for global accessibility. On Windows, Drush will look in the folder named "Drush/share/drush/commands" inside the location specified by the 'ALLUSERSPROFILE' environment variable.

Newer versions of drush (6.2 here) are installed with composer, the new PHP dependency manager. So the installation of an additional command is now like this, in your case:

  1. Go to the installation directory for drush commands:

    cd [drupal-site-docroot]/vendor/drush/drush/commands

    This assumes the default case where composer installed drush for each of your Drupal sites separately (it can also install it once per user, or once system-wide – I prefer the latter).

  2. Download, unpack and clean up:

    mv drush-toolbox-master drush-toolbox;
  3. Clear the commandfile cache to register the new command:

    drush cc drush
