1) Edit the "bin/alexandria" script and change the ``#!/usr/bin/env
ruby -Ku'' line by ``#!/usr/bin/ruby -Ku'' (if ruby is installed in
2) Download latest CVS tarball at:
In CVS the "bin/alexandria" script is auto-generated with the good
path. But the CVS version is still under development, and there are
bugs. So I recommend you the first option :-)
