What goes around comes around I guess :-)  Maybe those kipper ties from the
70s will be back too.

Actually, and here I toss in a handgrenade, if we are considering a Damn

make, so long as the GLIBC/maths libraries/MPI libraries  are the
appropriate ones.
I guess that statement goes for any Linux install really.
