Galaxy has a complex tool dependency mechanism which allows for
user-facing tools to call a specific version of an installed command

However, for the metadata processing, I believe Galaxy itself just
uses whichever samtools is on the $PATH (and ignores all the
clever Galaxy specific tool dependency stuff).
