Hi everyone I am working on slackbuilds for festival and 
speech_tools and am having a problem with simlinks being created 
during the make process for festival, the festival binary and the 
festival_client binary in $PKG/usr/bin/ are simlinks to 
/tmp/SBo/festival/bin/, this is also true for saytime. I have 
looked at the documentation for festival and found a variable in 
config/config called FESTIVAL_HOME That can be changed to set the 
installation location of festival. My question is can this variable 
be set from inside the slackbuild?

>From my experience it is best to assume that you can do anything sensible in
a SlackBuild and let the ADMINS sort it at their convenience and discretion,
but I would also look for other SlackBuilds to determine the norm; say

rm $PKG/usr/bin/my_symlink
ln -s /festival/bin/<binary> $PKG/usr/bin/my_symlink

This will create a bad symlink in the $PKG but when installed it will point
to the correct place.
