Building in Remote Directories

If you are working in a group, you may find it convenent to share source code and build in a separate area to the source. Unfortunately, this is not yet supported. Adding this capability should not be hard. gmake has capabilities to work with object files and source files in separate directories. Changing the location of the library files and executable should be easy as these are already parameterized using make variables. If you do this, please send us the results.
