Well, turkey in the shape, texture and flavor of a ham <G>

I think changing the default to /usr/local/bin/nALFS is probably fine, 
as is extending the README file to tell the user that they need to 
supply the path to nALFS if they installed it into a non-standard 
location. I don't think we should expect them to be able to find nALFS 
on the PATH, given that it doesn't normally install into /usr/bin. It's 
also not something that people run regularly, so again (certainly in my 
case) most people will not make special accomodations to make sure it 
can be found automatically.
