#2075: caol from LORENE2 requires RCS ident command

 Priority:  minor                  |   Milestone:                     
Component:  EinsteinToolkit thorn  |     Version:  development version
 Keywords:  LORENE2                |  
 The coal (and init_bin) commands that are build along with LORENE2 call
 rcs's ident command but this dependency is neither checked for not tested

 I don't know if not having the command around causes any more harm than
 not having the rcs info written to log files or not.

 We cannot abort the Cactus build if ident is not found as it is perfectly
 fine to use LORENE2 with existing data files (in which case coal and
 init_bin are never used). We may consider not building the utilities if
 ident is missing and if the rcs output if considered important.
