This happened to me as well. I'm running it on Mandrake 10.1 Download

You will need to do one of three things:
1) Add to your path the directory where the program resides
2)Run the program from it's location "/usr/brlcad/ia32/bin/mged"
3) Create a sym link in an appropiate directory back to the executable. I
placed mine as such:
"ln -s /usr/brlcad/ia32/bin/mged /usr/bin/mged"
The above are assuming that you had used the --prefix=/usr/brlcad/ia32 when
you performed the configure.
Hope this helps.
I have managed to get their GUI running, but that's as far as I have gotten so
