i woul'd like to make "ln-s /path/file" to every Users/home. Has
anyone an Idea?

What is possible usecase for this?
The Backround:
I've created the new BOINC Package (Version 6.4.5). Through execution
init.d/boinc the daemon created the Folder /var/lib/boinc with the *.xml
Files. The daemon runs fine. The GUI too. But the GUI cannot connect to
the daemon. Now i must test, if the file gui_rpc_auth.cfg is present in
the /home/$USER. If not it must be linked from /var/lib/boinc to the
User folder.
Solution 1.) I add this in the init.d Package and let automatic link.
Solution 2.) I let make this on userside.
Problem: Without this ln -s the GUI cannot connect to daemon.
Goal: My goal is to release an user friendly Packet. And all is

You can write a wrapper script to check / make such a link before
starting the GUI binary. Or, fix the GUI problem to do such a check
by itself.
