Regarding the installer packages on Fedora, for the compat-AccessGrid-2.4 
package, I patch each of the AGTk scripts under /usr/bin to set PYTHONPATH, 
but don't do it for AccessGrid-3.0 beta2. I think the packages for other 
linux distributions do the opposite, i.e set PYTHONPATH for AGTk3, but not 
AGTk 2.4 scripts.

Setting AGTK_LOCATION changes where the AGTk should look for /etc/AccessGrid 
with AG2.x (or /etc/AccessGrid3 for AG3) instead and isn't necessary with 
the installer packages.
