Cleaning up after building from source [linux]

Hi all, I have installed UE4 from source on linux and I want to remove the source code to free up some storage space. I’ve tried copying the Engine/Binaries/Linux folder to a different location but that won’t let me launch the editor. Does anyone know how I can handle this?

On Linux you can move any directories to any place and just make a symlink to a new location.
Works for me.

That’s nice, but I’m interested in figuring out which files are part of the installation and which are only part of the building process so I can remove the last kind. Do you happen to know something about this?
