[Ipopt] HSL distribution/compilation

Hi all,

We're looking at changing the way HSL packages are distributed - 
probably moving to have each package in its own .tar.gz/.zip archive 
with everything it needs.

We're also looking at adding interfaces for some more up to date 
packages to IPOPT.

Would it be better if we produced a single coinhsl.tar.gz with 
everything in it, or would people prefer to stick with individual 
packages as at present? (I'd aim to produce one representing the archive 
(free to everyone, non-redistributable) and a separate one for the main 
library (free to academics)).

Assuming a single download is preferable, would it be better with its 
own autotools based installation that just deposits a libhsl.so and 
libhsl.a somewhere friendly, or to integrate it into the IPOPT build 
tools (as at present) so the user can build it directly into their 
libipopt library?
