Well, upon inspection of the various directories, everything seemed to
be there, so I ran the interpreter and it seemed to work. Evaluated a
simple expression at the >>> prompt, imported a module and ran its
function. So, I don't know what part of the install failed. If
anyone can tell me where to find the various scripts that the MPKG
runs, that would help.
