Hi Issac,

In teh mean time, if you really need it, see if you'd like to try stow 
as a workaround.


Quite simple to use, IMHO. Configure the build to install gmsh under its 
own directory, e.g., /usr/local/stow/gmsh and run stow to create 
symbolic links to the usual local installation hierarchy /usr/local. 
Uninstallation is then simply "un"-stowing and deleting the 
/usr/local/stow/gmsh tree.
