This will install all packages currently in the catalogs simulations framework (CatSim) and metrics analysis framework (MAF) and all dependencies.  The installation should take on the order of 1 hour, with a final required installation size of 10GB. 

You install the software in two steps (lsst_apps first and then lsst_sims) so that EUPS can install the binary version of lsst_apps.  If you cut straight to `eups distrib install lsst_sims -t sims`, everything will be installed from source and the amount of time spent installing will increase significantly.

The `shebangtron` command is there to correct the paths to installed binaries of Data Management software packages.  Every time you install new binary packages, you will need to run the `shebangtron` command.
