I saw that ...  I really don't want to use autotools for this.  
Aside from that I think autotools is such a mess, compiling and 
installing plugins is something a regular user should be able to 

Consider this ....  There's a computer lab in an undergrad only 
university.  Let's assume they have some linux distro. how about 
CentOS for now (very stable, not much in the library).  They 
have installed gnucap by "yum install ...", and the sysadmin is 
clueless about what else is needed.

Now a student wants to use those models.  The command should be 
"load path/to/modelsourcedir".   and nothing more.
