My point here was that he had to make sure the executable was in the
path because he said he couldn't run it by just typing the name of the
program.  And *i* *DID* have to make a symlink to the executable on my
system, both on Gentoo, which I currently use and on Fedora Core, which
I used to use.  It is easier than editing the path, IMO.
