Hi Jim,

OK.  Since compile messages from the packages included with McIDAS 
do not get added to the McIDAS makelog file, I was not aware of
you doing this.  It does make sense now that you tell me, however,
since /usr/ucb/cc would be used as the C compiler otherwise.

>2) I have decided to move the McIDAS build to the ACCAS machine. 

I rebuilt McIDAS on accas, not on pileus.

It is always a good idea to build McIDAS on the machine that is running
the LDM if you are using the XCD decoders.  It prevents weird inconsistencies
like unfound shared libraries especially when the different machines
are running different versions of the same OS.

OK.

I think that the problem is that few textual obs are actually being
processed by 'xcd_run DDS'.  It makes a lot of sense to me (or, at
least it did at 2:30 this morning) since XCD starts decoding data
very soon after LDM startup, but then much less after the LDM has been
running for a bit (like after a pqing has added data from your
NOAAPORT box).

By the way, I am curious about which NOAAPORT system you are using.

OK.

Cheers,

Tom
