There is a new version of Build Scripts installed at JLab. It is version 
2.33 <https://github.com/JeffersonLab/build_scripts/releases/tag/2.33>. 
The major change is mentioned in Pull Request #243 

   The original Build Scripts would define a home directory for every 
package if one was not found in the environment. These were the "prod" 
directories. This behavior was removed for some of the GlueX-specific 
packages some time ago. This pull request removes that behavior for all 

   The new paradigm is that package-specific set-up steps are only 
performed when said packages are defined, usually via a version set file.

This allows users to create custom version sets where they can pick and 
choose which GlueX packages are set-up and which are ignored. Ignored 
packages are naturally those omitted from the custom version set files. 
This change is a step along the way to the "light-weight builds" that 
have been discussed recently.
