Hi Greg,

  I think the Chimera build system should not install Chimera as each
piece is built.  The trouble with that is if the build fails half way
through, then the installed Chimera is crippled.  I don't want that to
happen even on our development machines.  I think Chimera should build
into a temporary build directory, and when the build succeeds, a "make
install" puts it in the installed location.  This is an easy change
to our current system, simply pointing the Chimera build to a temporary
directory instead of the install directory.
