   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.

HP/UX has been steady at 9.0x for a while for me, with only one
architecture, so I do not. However, 10.x is on the way so I support
this. I will look into implementing it.
