Hamish, thanks for the review.

Michael, Peter,
Are you able to address this ASAP?
I've very keen to have rasdaman working 100% before we make our first 
release candidate for testing, due on 21 Feb, in 24 to 48 hours.
Please let us know as soon as you are finished, so that a 2nd person can 
test the install script in the latest VM.
