simfactory should create the "simulations" directory

Issue #649 closed
Roland Haas created an issue

when following the new users tutorial one gets:

[rhaas@qb1 Cactus]$ ./simfactory/bin/sim submit static_tov --parfile=par/static_tov.par --procs=32 --walltime=8:0:0
Parameter file: /home/rhaas/Cactus/par/static_tov.par
Error: could not access simulation base directory /scratch/rhaas/simulations for reading and writing
Aborting Simfactory.

This happens each time I set up a fresh simfactory on a machine. It might be useful if simfactory would create the simulation base directory if it does not exist.
