264. Upgrade to ECCE 6.4 on Debian Testing

There's little reason to upgrade from 6.3 to 6.4 since
Other than open source availability and bundling the latest NWChem 6.1.1, the ECCE 6.4 release is otherwise equivalent to the 6.3 release.  
But it's always nice with some new and shiny.

For general instructions on how to install ecce from scratch, see e.g.

Go here to download the latest release. You will be asked to supply your name, email address and the name of your institution. However, you no longer need to register.

Download the file install_ecce.v6.4.rhel5-gcc4.1.2-m64.csh (full binary + builder). And yes, you can use wget for that.
Stop the ecce server if it's running:

Make your ecce install file executable and run it:
chmod +x install_ecce.v6.4.rhel5-gcc4.1.2-m64.csh

which launches the installation:

   the installation and compute resource registration manuals

-- Before running ECCE each user must source an environment
   setup script.  For csh/tcsh users add this to ~/.cshrc:
     if ( -e /home/me/.ecce/ecce-v6.4/apps/scripts/runtime_setup ) then
