Search Path for procedures

SIC may define a path (by opposition to a directory as now) for procedure. After tests, the following syntax is proposed:

SIC MACRO_PATH "./;GAG_CURRENT:pro/greg/;GAG_CURRENT:pro/clic/;"
The initial proposal (to allow logical names to define a path) would have caused logic problems when creating files. Unix style syntax was discussed, but rejected (the two proposals for Unix-like syntax were different).

A.Perrigouard suggested that if a machine hosting a ressource has to be specified a double slash may introduce it, like //iraux2/usr/local. This possibility is not implemented so far (see 5.1).
