libMesh-0.6.2

A number of enhancements are currently underway on the SVN branch to enable fully distributed meshes on parallel machines. During this effort a number of small bugs were found and have been fixed in this incremental release. This includes:

(1) improper sizing of the _send_list for
parallel jobs.
(2) PETSc interface fix to allow for
(n_elem < n_cpus).
(3) Correctly return a DistributedVector<> when
neither PETSc nor LASPACK are available.

Additionally, the ExodusII finite element storage API (and requisite netcdf library) has been added to the library.
