We cannot do this!  If one ignores advice and is installing libIDL2 it
will overwrite the current libIDL.  If the current libIDL is uninstalled
after installing libIDL2 it will be broken.  Have not the right idea how
to handle it gracefully.

We must ensure that an installation of libIDL2 forces the current libIDL
to be uninstalled at first.  I still think the easiest way would be to
rename libIDL to ORBit-libIDL or to include it completely into the
ORBit package.  Then in addition to create an empty libIDL package which
will uninstall the current.
