Yes, thanks. I was aware of the fact that the problem derived from the
fact that the environment is reset by sudo, although I didn't make
mention of it in my mail. What I found odd was that some applications
(Gorm, fo example) work with "sudo make install".

Yes, I'm doing the same, but this problem appeared due to the need of
autobuilding Installer using a predifined set of methods that use make
&& sudo make install. I think that the pl2link invocation can indeed
by done in "make", since all I see it do is creating a .desktop file
in the application bundle. There is no need to be root for that.

I'll try to change application.make and other relevant files to see if
I can move pl2link somewhere else, since I think that "sudo make
install" should work out of the box.
