    [ Ticket #1179 ] Slash character terminates BIRCH environment variable

    Summary:
    Slash character terminates BIRCH environment variable
    Original submission:
    By default, GetBirch sets the path for BIRCH to

    $HOME/BIRCH

    However, if you try to install in a different directory, and delete the 'BIRCH' string, the $BIRCH envrionment variable will terminate with a '/'. This is a serious bug, since it will create paths with two slashes eg.

    /home/sullivan/BIRCH1//lib-linux-intel

    whick would cause important files not to be found.

    Probably the best solution, which would circumvent the problem in GetBirch, is to modify scripts so that they eliminate terminal / from $BIRCH.
