I just finished this exercise for CapFast 3.02.25 (Solaris).  My installation
consisted of the following:

* Do the "standard" installation of EPICS symbols, binaries, etc.

* Copy ~p3/wcs/lib/epics*.mnu to ~p3/wcs/lib/menus.new/

* Edit the above copies and remove all ":repop epics" commands.

* Edit the file ~p3/wcs/lib/menus.new/picklib.mnu and add the lines:
    text &EPICS Library^M
    string :set libchoice epics;:mload schedit2;:echo ^G'Part' menu updated.^M
    text^M
    string^M
  Note the ^M is a ctrl-M, one character, not two like I've done here (to
  pass through mailers).  Same with the &%#&$ bell.
  I placed these four lines at the top of the choices, right after the
  "[text use]^M line.

* Create the file ~p3/wcs/lib/menus.new/libepics.mnu and stuff the following
  into it:
    [pmenu]^M
    [text use]^M
    text &Get By Name^M
    string :get^M
    text^M
    string^M
    text Schematic &Connectors^M
    string :popup schcon^M
    text &Border^M
    string :popup border^M
    text^M
    string^M
    text &Small^M
    string :popup epicss^M
    text &Large^M
    string :popup epicsl^M
    text &All^M
    string :popup epics^M

I'd be interested in any other modifications, especially to the rules or
symbols.  Is someone else modifying record symbol files WRT Philip Taylor's
discovery of typ(...):path inconsistencies?
