GNU Stow

https://www.gnu.org/software/stow/
Symlink farm manager.

Stow is a symlink manager. It generates symlinks to directories of data and makes them appear to be merged into the same directory. It is typically used for managing software packages installed from source, by letting you install them apart in distinct directories and then create symlinks to the files in a common directory such as /usr/local.

Stow was inspired by Carnegie Mellon's "Depot" program, but is substantially simpler.
