OK, the next release will have a better discussion.
${GEOM}/mathematica should be automatically created when the files are
placed there -- did you actually get an error with this?

Sigh.  This would be hard to do.

Could you explain that?  I'm trying to guess what you might be seeing...

We really need a useful "make clobber".  Meanwhile, you can type
(from inside the top-level Geomview directory)

	find src/bin -size +100 -mtime -10 -print | xargs rm -f

to remove the executables from the source directories, saving 30 MB or so,
and maybe also

	make clean

to remove all the object files, saving another two or three megabytes.
(You could also remove the entire src/* tree if you wish, since it
won't actually be used while you're running geomview and company.)
