How hard is to understand not to top post, even when it is mentioned in one
of the mail?
Secondly, if you want to ask a question, please create a new thread.
This seems like distro specific requirements, which are more suitable to be
asked in distro mailing list.
Even if these are distro specific directory requirement it is very likely
to override the requirements by making changes in configuration files
and/or Makefile and/or .config to look for the given path. If at all you
change the directory location, you might want to be sure that no other
utility looks for those path e.g. other utilities which depend on kernel
source path like virtual machines etc.
