If the installation directory structure for the user 'mcidas' is
_exactly_ the same on the target machine, and the operating system

o cd to ~mcidas/mcidas7.6/tcl/unix
  make distclean
o cd to ~mcidas/mcidas7.6/tk/unix
  make distclean
o cd ~mcidas/mcidas7.6/src
  rm tclcomp

o make mcx
  make install.mcx
