i dont understand why 2 or 4 were necessary.  the configure script should
have taken care of these steps.

> 2) Modify the perl path in the install script to be correct for OS X.

> 4) Modify the clogin (for Cisco) expect script's 1st line to be
> #!/usr/local/bin/expect

> Thanks to those who have made this very useful utility.
