Hello all,

I'll be committing some changes later today that are minor changes to the
regression test scripts.  None of these changes will modify the results.

1. Regression test inputs and baselines on WCOSS will move to
/nems/noscrub/emc.nemspara, and will be owned by a new emc.nemspara account.

2. The rt.sh will detect failures of the configure or compile steps, and
will abort the tests on failure.  The previous behavior was to either run
tests with the old NEMS.x or run with no NEMS.x, depending on how exactly
the configure or compile failed.

3. All compile steps are logged in Compile_*.log, instead of just the last

4. Files with _VARNAME_ substitution now have @[VARNAME] syntax, and use
tests/atparse.* for variable replacement.

Item #4 simplifies several scripts and has a number of advantages.
However, it is primarily for forward compatibility to the new regression
test suite so that the old and new suite will be able to share the same
input files.  The new regression tests suite is NOT in this commit.  That
suite will be committed in ~1-2 weeks, depending on feedback from code
