We can consistently try to go to the compile directory or to the install
directory first, whatever people want.  A problem with the former
approach is that the definition might not be there any more, e.g., after
a fresh checkout.  That's why I would probably prefer the latter.

I would suggest something like this:

- A variable to decide where to go
- Possibly there should be a separate variable for the src tree
- If not possible to go there:
  * If no other choice then give an error
  * Otherwise ask user wether to go to the other place
