I no longer use a separate build dir (i.e., lndir). I switched away from it
as it wasn't buying me anything and I would run into issues that only
seemed to manifest with symlinks. Otherwise I've not experienced the issues
you mention. I'd point out though that GHC's 'no validate failures' is very
frequently violated which did confuse me a lot when getting started.
