the installer should not be in an arch symlink farm

It's entirely pointless for the canonical installer location to be in in /afs/sipb.mit.edu/project/debathena/arch/i386_deb40/bin/installer. At the very least, the final directory in the tree should be a symlink to somewhere non-arch-specific.

It's a symlink, do we care? The canonical location is /mit/debathena/bin/installer, which will survive the debathena locker moving to the Athena cell, etc.

I could see an argument that we want to dissociate /mit/debathena/bin, the build system utilities, from the installer, and not necessarily tie them to the same SVN version. But we can already do that without making them distinct checkouts.
