Although the supplibs-2.0.1 have all the pieces you need to build GrADS v2,
the current build mechanism in v2 does not work with it "out of the box".
(In designing the supplibs-2.x.x I reorganized the directories slightly for
robustness and ease of maintenance.)

I have made available to COLA patches for v2.0.a0 and v2.0.a1 that made
GrADS v2 build transparently with the OpenGrADS supplibs (along with patches
needed for a Windows version), but these mods were never incorporated. I am
not sure whether they were unacceptable to COLA or whether they haven't had
a chance to look into it given their other pressing priorities.  I am yet to
apply these patches to v2.0.a2.
