That was it. sys.path listed /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages, among
others, but the PythonCad directory wasn't there. I ran the install
script as a normal user the first time. I wondered that it went pretty
fast and didn't seem to do much. I re-ran the script as sudo, and it
spent a couple minutes byte compiling things into site-packages. Now
gtkpycad.py runs OK from its installed location.
One of the joys of being a newbie -- everything's an adventure. Thanks
for the prompt response.
