Is there some way to persuade the installer to put these files where I
The current installer has an option "install symlinks" in the menu which
will create symlinks in your system directories (whatever you specify)
to the binaries within TL. It wouldn't work to have the actual binaries
outside the TL tree, then they couldn't find their configuration files
(without a lot of additional work on your part).
We were actually going to drop this option in the new installer we are
working on, but I guess we shouldn't.
