Thanks for the clue Björn. The Environment section of the man page indicates
I have to add the path to the tbz files in the PKG_PATH variable. But there
is no indication of the syntax to do this. PKG_PATH does not appear to be a
command with a man page. Any input as to how I update the PKG_PATH variable
? Did I miss something out?
