Has Lahey changed their licensing?  Last time I talked to them they
expected me to buy a license for every cluster node that I was going
to run on, not compile.  This was not acceptable.  I explained to the
Sales guy at SC2001 about this and that Portland Group and Intel did
not license this way, but only for where you compile.
