Yes, there has to be some way to override automatic behavior.  (For
instance, I'm using this right now to prevent Phenix from using the Coot
installed by Fink, because Fink has broken on my computer, yet again.)

The Mac problems appear to have cleared up when I removed the hard-coded

Sorry, I hadn't thought about cross-platform issues when I set this up; not
sure if there's a good way to deal with this.  I don't think there are too
many people running Linux+Mac environments with shared home directories, but
I've been worried about 32- vs. 64-bit compatibility.
