The normal would be the opposite: the miniAudicle has a pre-made  
symlink to /usr/local/bin/chuck. Then, when the latter is updates,  
miniAudicle will use it.

If for some reason, one does not want miniAUdicle to change, just let  
it have a binary as is the case now. One will then run different  
binaries in it and from the console.
