   I need some clarification. Do you want the directory name "jhalfs" to 
be referenced through a variable:

  define in common/config

AND THEN modify all references to the directory jhalfs, replace with the 
variable SCRIPT_ROOT?

echo -e "\nKB: \`du -skx --exclude=jhalfs \`\n" >>logs/$this_script
echo -e "\nKB: \`du -skx --exclude=${SCRIPT_ROOT} \`\n" >>logs/$this_script
