Hi John,

> Re OpenBabel: I'm reticent to package OpenBabel with VMD

Would you accept a patch to add code in macosxvmdstart.C that auto-detects its presence in PATH? Currently, VMD expects VMDBABELBIN to be set, even if I have an obabel binary in my PATH. In my case, I have open babel installed and VMD won’t use it, which is not an ideal experience.
