Thank you Duncan (for your script) and zbiggy (for your symlink method).

Your tips could solve my problem,
but I am now stuck with my customized DEPENDS file not being taken into 
consideration by lin. :(
This issue is the subject of the bug-report:

Running "lin moonbase" does not update the depends cache
to reflect the changes I made to my own zlocal DEPENDS file.

Being a mortal user, AFAIK :) , I would like to avoid methods 2. and 3.
(3. is reported as not working too, on the bug-tracker).
