In my Mac wanderings, I did install METIS, but was told later that it was
not needed. You must pay special attention to the editing of (in
multiple places) in order to tell the SuiteSparse build process that you
don't want METIS. 

I identified my need of libcamd.a via missing routines with the camd name in
them. I added LIBS=-lcamd before configuring to solve that problem.
