* Issues regeneration kranc thorns
Steve was unable to regenerate Kranc thorns using multiple version of
MMA. Similarly for NRPy+ based thorn.
Roland could generate code one release past using MMA 12 and a bugfix
in Kranc's repo:


Zach redid how codes are expected to be build in NRPy and added a nicer
build system. Checked that core kernel code is identical, with some
lines changing to different files. 
At this point this is an update to nrpytutorial. Should be reviewed as
a patch to Baikal. Steve will take a look.
