FAQ
A proposed (and accepted and tested) Configure change made me change the
following:

.../metaconfig/U/modified> cp .../metaconfig/dist-3.0at70b/mcon/U/i_malloc.U .
--- modify it ---
.../metaconfig/U/modified> cd ../all
.../metaconfig/U/modified> ln -s ../modified/i_malloc.U .

to get the structure as it should

metalint does not complain
metaconfig -m now creates the Configure I expect (did not even reorder :)

But the change not only requires me to add a new file in the chain, which I
would manage I guess, but also to add some symlinks.

Help please.

    That's fine and normal -- it's what the "modified" directory is for.
    .../metaconfig/U/modified> cd ../all
    .../metaconfig/U/modified> ln -s ../modified/i_malloc.U .
    That's odd. I don't know what the purpose of the ../all directory is.
    I suspect it's not necessary. I know I never used to have such a
    directory, and I don't have one now either (though I'm probably not
    completely up-to-date).

    The one odd directory requirement is for the a_advisory/ directory, and
    that's explained in the README somewhere under the metaconfig branch.

    It was there when I started :)

    To summarize, *adding* the file in /modified will do?

    After that, regenerate Configure, and add the diff as a second patch

    Yup, that should do it.
