A couple of things on this:

Is that script right?  I don't see it doing anything with $METHOD... should it be exporting it... or putting it before ./configure and make or something?  I modified the script to export METHOD (and do a couple of other things) and it appears to be mostly working.

However, does this build system work with the old include paths?  I see an include path like: -I/Users/gastdr/projects/libmesh/install/include  on the compile line.  Is there a configure switch I need to throw to get it to be -I/Users/gastdr/projects/libmesh/install/include/libmesh  ??

$./configure … --prefix=…
$ make && make install

That will allow multiple builds (opt, dbg, devel) to be installed into the same place and have a single Make.common that does the right thing, also in the install tree.

Check ./contrib/bin/buildall.sh to see how I usually handle things
