In an attempt to move forward on this, I'll try and keep in pace with
what you tell me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand your view is to either:

- - specify the install_root separately and use it all over the script, or

- - not allow to modify it at all and basically let the builddir setting
specify where the (subdir) install_root is exactly

The first of which I'm thinking has the most flexibility. If I was to
propose a patch doing exactly that, is there anything else you want me
to keep in mind?

Kind regards,
