[tex-live] installing with custom binaries & making it

Thanks,  'bin/*/man' is really the symlink

My new question:

Make world fails with this:

top-level make world: running texlinks in texk/texlive/tl_scripts ...
cd texk/texlive/tl_scripts && make  run-texlinks
make[1]: Entering directory
export PATH; /bin/x86_64-linux/texlinks -v -f
/opt/texlive/2014/texmf-dist/web2c/fmtutil.cnf -e "" /bin/x86_64-linux
/bin/sh: /bin/x86_64-linux/texlinks: No such file or directory
Makefile:856: recipe for target 'run-texlinks' failed
make[1]: *** [run-texlinks] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory
Makefile:1006: recipe for target 'world' failed
make: *** [world] Error 2

Sources were configured with:

--prefix=/opt/texlive/2014 \
--bindir=/opt/texlive/2014/bin/custom \

so texlinks placed in 'bin/custom' and '/bin/x86_64-linux' directory not

Where in makefiles (or anywhere else) is texlinks invoke string? Where is
this 856th line actualy?

Should I manualy edit it some something else?
