[McIDAS #MET-935016]: McIDAS - Cannot get mcunpack to execute -- keep getting message to define McINST_ROOT

Hi Alan,

Given that you now have gcc installed, it would be quicker if I could login
to your machine as the user 'mcidas' and snoop around to see what is causing
your build problems.  Can you give me login (SSH) access to your machine?

I believe I told you previously that I run Fedora Core 4 on my machine at
home so I can do development at home, and I do not have any of the
problems you are seeing.

Aside: I just upgraded to FC5 at home, and did find a bug in the 'configure'
script for both the Tcl and Tk packages bundled with McIDAS.  This was an
interesting situation since the bug has been in the script for many releases
of Tcl/Tk, and it has not caused any problems in McIDAS builds on a wide
variety of Operating Systems -- until FC5!
