Run the script again.

OK, if you're suggesting this is an argument against the script I mentioned,
fine by me. I don't think it's needed either. I was just trying to point
out that there are alternatives for those individuals who preferred their
installation of netpbm to go in other directories. I wasn't really
proposing a specific solution.

Right. That's an option too for those who want something different than
setup would provide.
I guess I can live with netpbm packaged with it's own bin directory if
it handles adding the special directory to PATH and given that it is the
exception to the rule like you mentioned.
