Patches for software in the VDT

When we build software for the VDT, we patch Globus and Apache.

Building Globus for VDT 1.8.1

To build Globus for VDT 1.8.1, we check out Globus 4.0 using the globus_4_0_5 tag then we apply the patches that follow. If you like, you can look at the source code after it has been patched.

For those who are interested, you can see the exact build script that we use to build VDT 1.8.1. This script is meant to be run in the Metronome build and test software, so it will NOT run out of the box for you. That said, you might still find it useful to understand how we do the build.
