Additionally, pkg-metis does not seem to be iinstalling enough header files
for parmetis to be successfully built. In particular, it is not installing
the headers from the GKlib folder:

poulson at poulson-ThinkPad-E520:~/Source/External/pkg-metis/build$ make
[100%] Built target metis
Install the project...
-- Install configuration: ""
-- Up-to-date: /home/poulson/Source/Install/include/metis.h
-- Up-to-date: /home/poulson/Source/Install/include/gklib_tls.h
-- Up-to-date: /home/poulson/Source/Install/lib/libmetis.a
-- Up-to-date: /home/poulson/Source/Install/include/gklib_defs.h
-- Up-to-date: /home/poulson/Source/Install/include/gklib_rename.h

What is the recommended means of coupling pkg-metis and pkg-parmetis?
