For Genscan.t, the test script looked at the wrong environment variable.

Here I'm talking about lagan itself (the thing you get from 
http://lagan.stanford.edu/lagan_web/citing.shtml, nothing to do with 
Bioperl) needing the environment variable LAGAN_DIR to be set in order 
to work.

Since you need to set LAGAN_DIR to make lagan work, it makes sense that 
the Bioperl front-end to lagan also use the same variable.
