We have lots of suns and sgis around here, and STk needs to merge the
system directories for those machines the way it does for Linux. I
suggest adding to the launch scripts:

  case $version in
   4.*) version=4.X;;

  case $version in
   5.*) version=5.X;;
   6.*) version=6.X;;
  case $machine in
   IP*) machine=IPxx;;

(Cliff, do you have something like this for HP/UX?) It might also be
nice to add a symbolic link with just the os name to the install
directory like

  IRIX -> IRIX-5.3-IP26

and then if the launch script can't find IRIX-5.2-IP19 it
can try just IRIX.
