  r.meta and v.meta are scripts; no compilation needed. I'm going to make at
least one change in our copy: the r.meta script has vi hard-wired in as the
editor of the metadata file. I'll change that to invoke the user's editor
environmental variable.

  I've not looked closely at both r.meta and v.meta, but I have problems
understanding why there are two separate scripts (and nothing for sites
data). In my naivety, a single metadata creation script ought to work for
any data type (which would be specified either in the data file name or
another entry in the metadata file -- my preference).
