     Well, I am not sure how I got to this point. I noticed again the 
NOTE: you have in the texlive package instructions about running the 
script that makes the links twice messing them up. I can't say for sure. 
I know I did that but I think I had already found I had a problem before 
I did. At any rate the fix is to remove the /opt/texlive/2015/bin/<ARCH> 
directory and re-installing. That seems to have fixed all my woes and I 
now have an installed asymptote package. Not that I know what to do with 
it. :-) BTW, I followed your instructions on how to get the system to 
add the directory to my PATH but it doesn't seem to work. If I can't get 
that fixed I'll just hard code it. Looks like a good time to go to bed 
and start in again tomorrow. Night all.
