[McIDAS #ECE-924432]: Creating and populating a local ADDE server

Hi Kevin,

Just to make sure we are on the same page:

The installation targets are:

make install      <- installs McIDAS-X only
make install.mcx  <-           "

make install.xcd  <- installs -XCD (McIDAS must be installed previously)

make install.all  <- installs McIDAS-X and -XCD

The typical installation for a site that wants to run XCD is:

make install.all

> When I ran into these errors in the mcidasmcx script, I copied
> them manually from mcidas2009/src into the bin directory.  These included:
> ingebin.k
> ingetext.k
> gribadmin
> decinfo.k

At this point, I would say that all bets are off.  I would redo things as
as follows:

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/mcidas2009/src
make clobber
make all
make install.all

> When I launch ldm (currently only processing DDPLUS), the XCD_START.LOG 
> continuously
> reports this error:
> Starting DDS at 13116.213000
> problem with file CIRCUIT.DAT
> may need to be initialized with circuit command
> ingetext.k: Done

As I said above, all bets are off if you had to hand-copy executables to the
~mcidas/bin directory.

> I noticed that circuit.k was not installed in ~/mcidas/bin, so I placed it 
> there and ran
> it to see if that would help, but it did not.

Please see procedure above.

I think that if you follow the ABC above, you will be very close to being
