Remote login authorization failures

With the netldi running as root, logins where the gem is on a different
node than the stone, including remote linked logins as well as remote RPC
logins, may encounter authorization failures in starting up one of the
pgsvr processes.  This will result in errors on login similar to: "Repository
is not attached".

Workaround

Running the netldi in guest mode with a captive account does not have this
problem.

Setting the authorization an environment variable allows login, e.g.:
   setenv GEMSTONE_NRS_ALL "#auth:username@password"

The authorization lookup is done on machine IP address rather than name.
In the .netrc file, use the IP address rather than (or in addition to)
the machine name.
