  MPC command line options:

  Problem description (please be as detailed as possible):

The .mpc file option "install=<directory>", when using gnuace, simply
puts a symbolic link
in <directory> to the actual executable which is located in the build

executable to <directory>. Is there a way to mimic this behaviour when
using gnuace ?
Thanks for your time and attention.
