Description From 2008-08-19 16:21:58
If some silly user were to build from source, the rpaths for
grid-cert-diagnostics will be correct, allowing it to be run even while
GLOBUS_LOCATION (and the associated library paths) are unset.  This will yield
potentially confusing behavior for the silly user if they run
grid-cert-diagnostics and get messages like
"$GLOBUS_LOCATION/share/certificates is not a valid trusted CA directory" when
they have an unexported GLOBUS_LOCATION environment variable in their shell.

Not that anyone would do that, of course.  But it might be nice to print
something like "Checking certificate setup for <value of GLOBUS_LOCATION" up at
the top, and print a message if GLOBUS_LOCATION is not set.
