Well, not much to add. symlink-bindir is currently an option from the main section, it would make more sense to make it an option for the installdirs sections since this is really a choice of where to install things.

I don't think I understand this. Is it just about where in the help list the description is displayed? What does it have to do with user/global?

Ah, I understand this now: it's about the config file, where we can specify separate dirs for the "user" and "global" case, but only for selected options.
