Done. Nim is installed in /opt because it's the easiest and recommended
way of installing it.

What do you think about patching to not create a nim subfolder?

Then you could replace these two phases with

+             (lambda* (#:key outputs #:allow-other-keys)
+               (let ((out (assoc-ref outputs "out")))
+                 (system* "./" out))
It would pollute the root directory, but as it's going to be alone in his own directory... I don't know, but here you have another patch that does exactly that. If you're going to add it, feel free to choose the one you prefer (if you
choose the first, change the version, they updated to 0.16.0 ;) )
