Hi Mark,

I'm replacing --with-orcallator-dir with --with-var-dir, so you'll
have the same capability to specify where the directories go.

With --with-var will point at one directory above the orcallator dir.
So normally, you would have


and now you would use


and the installation for orcallator implicitly adds the last 'orcallator'
to get the same location.

This causes problems if you don't have the last directory named orcallator,
but I did it since Orca will have more than one data measurement tool
and I wanted to have all the data in one place.
