[ldmMcidas #IJK-183665]: ldm-mcidas installation problem on Mac OS X

I understand.  I will copy a file of example UNIWISC PIPE actions
to the ~ldm/etc directory on virga for reference.

We are _very_ disappointed with Apple for not addressing this issue.
We have tried the LDM on an internal MacOS-X machine here at the UPC
each time Apple came out with an updata for MacOS-X, but none of the
mods fixed the problem.

A grand hope, but I am kinda doubtful that it will (sigh).
