I don't see those, to be honest. Switching directory to run the thing
doesn't seem like a big benefit and running in place... look at the
.gitignore files
and you'll see what I mean when I say it's an ugly thing to do.

This is intentional, actually. Docs, instructions and scripts should
only point at and describe the internal content of this folder, not to
the folder name. If somebody builds from sources they will know what
they're doing (?).

Trust me, it is terrible in many ways...
