[ewg] Suggestion to improve usibility of the install script

Hi Vlad,

during the installation of the OFED-1.4 package I noticed that the installation
script shows the user the missing packages/dependencies in a inconvenient and circular way.
If packages like gcc++, tcl, bison, tk and many more were missing, the script
only shows one missing package at each time instead of showing all missing 
packages. So the user has to restart the installation after haveing installed the reported package.
Is it possible to change the script to provide the missing packages at once?

regards Stefan
