good to mix binaries and sources
Of course it's not good. I hope you don't think I was happy about this
approach. Just the opposite, believe me. As I wrote in the README, I
just didn't see any other practical way to do it. It's cost a lot of
effort and time in making the special case, but given how popular biber
+ biblatex have become, it seemed worth it.
/tlnet/install -biber-bin PATH_TO_BIBER_BIN...
I don't see the advantage to piling more kludges on top of the existing
kludges. Just install biber independently in your /usr/local/bin.
Sorry about not working well with -custom-bin, but this whole thing has
been a pain from beginning to end.
