ardim is on a distinguished road
I've built SU2 from source (kudos to the developers, because it's notably easier to build than other CFD packages), and it was installed into the prefix I specified.

Now the docs say I must define SU2_RUN as the prefix where all the binaries were installed, and SU2_HOME as the path to the SU2 source code... but... do you really need to define SU2_HOME?

I mean, if you download a precompiled SU2, you get only the binaries, so... users who download it precompiled should also download the source and set SU2_HOME pointing to it? Why?

I don't like the idea of defining SU2_HOME because I want the source to remain unmodified and untouched.
