Well, no.  Not from my part.  It's fine when you use it, but I
definitely think it's not the right way.

What is missing in both bootstrap documents is this:
./bootstrap-prefix.sh $EPREFIX startscript

It will do some magic and produce a script called `startprefix`.  Simply
move it where you like (i.e. homedir?) and just run it:

% ./startprefix

e.g.:

(pegasus:~) fabian% echo $EDITOR
/usr/bin/vim
(pegasus:~) fabian% ./startprefix
