Well yes, that's the point of this report. No-one has implemented a
relocatable Emacs installation for general POSIX platforms. Solving
those problems is part of it. A relocatable Emacs would not be installed
as you describe above, it would (I imagine) be installed similar to the
way the NS build is, under a single top-level directory.
