I don't see why this change is necessary. Assume IVROOT is
/usr/people/somebody/workarea. The source files will be in $IVROOT/inventor.
The results of the build will be in $IVROOT/usr. Once everything is done, you
can simply cd to $IVROOT/usr, tar up everything there, and extract the archive
anywhere else you please.
