Description From 2003-08-12 12:55:40
When running globus-makefile-header using globus-2.4.2 on a SGI (also tested
using a Sun box as well), I receive misleading errors when only GLOBUS_LOCATION
or GPT_LOCATION is set:

turing.hyeung 201> unsetenv GLOBUS_LOCATION
turing.hyeung 202> unsetenv GPT_LOCATION
turing.hyeung 203> globus-makefile-header --flavor vendorcc32

The error messages you are encountering when one, but not both, of GPT_LOCATION
and GLOBUS_LOCATION are set are generated by the GPT, not by
globus-makefile-header, so I am giving this bug to Michael Bletzinger at NCSA,
who maintains the GPT.  GPT_INSTALL_LOCATION should never need to be set to use
globus-makefile-header.  GLOBUS_LOCATION always needs to be set when using
globus-makefile-header, and GPT_LOCATION needs to be set if the GPT was
installed into a different location than GLOBUS_LOCATION (which is recommended).

What we have here is an interface problem probably caused by the misnamed
paramter 'pkgdir' which should actually be called 'installdir'.  The following
patch needs to be applied to globus-makefile-header to fix this:
