    Bill, the thought of installing it somewhere that the system really 
doesn't need to know about it -- only the WRF executable and support 
files *IF* that's all it needs.  Since it won't run without it, I can 
only guess that maybe its the only problem, but given all the other 
problems I've encountered with this project, it would not surprise me 
one bit to find there are other files / libs that it might be looking 
for.  I suppose I should drop a line to the software developers and see 
what they say, but their help desk only recommended trying to execute it 
via the mpirun since it was compiled in part by mpicc.

    Before I blow it all away and go to the 3.5 distro, can someone pass 
the command that I'd use with rpm to install it to say /home/sam ?
