Subject: AMBER: Additional note on vs. LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Folks -
I should have included this in my previous posting. All my comments about
the caveats assume that you are set up to use rsh or ssh as your mechanism
of starting processes (what I do using ch_p4 and mpirun on my machines). If
you use ch_p4mpd and the mpd demon on your systems, then environments should
not be inherited, and it is definitely preferable to use as
opposed to LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Dave K. did not report problems with limits.
