OF installation for multiple users

I want to share how I installed OF1.6 for multiple users on my 64-bit RHEL5. Because I could not get paraview3.6 going, I installed separately paraview 3.8. That is discussed separately.
Comments or suggestions on how others have done it are welcome.
I have a user account from which I do system & software management, $SM. All software is compiled there, and either stays there or is deployed into standard system locations.
For OpenFOAM, I have the $SM/OpenFOAM directory with the standard OF directory structure. The goal is for other users to execute a startup script that will allow them access to OF's environment (including aliases), sources, libraries & executables.
Note: The following is from memory
I could not install PV systemwide. I did not have the patience to study the instructions (Actually, I don't know how to build rpms for systemwide installation). Instead I installed PV into $SM.
Enabling OF to use PV
