a word about the commercial UNIXes: I think most of them are located in
Göttingen actually. So login on them is no problem for us. I think almost all
(not sure about our HP-UX machine) have native C compilers that support c++.
I'll take care that cmake will find its way there. Compiling cmake on them
*can't* be more painfull than it was to compile python ! :-)
