  Yes, I remember we talked about it. And my answer was that
flag-slashpackage will assume hard-coded paths work, because that's
an important point of slashpackage (if not the whole point). If
you need relocatable binaries, you should compile *without*
flag-slashpackage, and that will work: exec will use PATH
resolution for intra-package dependencies as well as cross-package
  Just remove flag-slashpackage. You don't need to mess with conf-home.
