Barry, could we make ./configure a proper file, using
execfile("config/configure.py") (actually, I'll make it a bit more
robust than that).  The reason is that symlinks sometimes cause
trouble, some versions of pip fail to install PETSc because of the
tarball containing a symlink. I've already had a report of such
