Dear Rainer,

I do not understand the "..is absolutely not what we want"-part of your 
Regarding the symlink you posted, the binary in your example will appear
as $prefix/bin/hg. Why is that considered "bad" or "no go"?

Regarding my time: University got my attention for the next 24 months,

Kind regards
