[McIDAS #NIE-529635]: problems compiling McIDAS v2009 on CentOS 6.3

I have no idea why this code did not result in the sourcing of
your .cshrc file ** unless ** the settings on your terminal
window did not specify that it is a login window.  For instance,
if you simply opened a new terminal window (Xterm or terminal)
and the settings for new terminal windows did not specify
that it was a login window, then .login and .cshrc would not
be read.

I am in my CentOS environment at the moment, so I am unable
to give a blow-by-blow for setting the login window property
for a new terminal.  I recommend looking at the configuration
options for new terminal windows and see if you can find and
set the needed setting.
