tovid installation problem


When I try to use tovid, I get this error.. I do have mjpegtools installed and its listed in the code below too. Why is video stuff so hard in linux..

Code:
linux:/usr/local/bin # ls
.       bsetroot         fbrun     fluxbox                kvirc                kvi_search_help.sh  makexml   tovid-batch
..      doom3            ffmpeg    fluxbox-generate_menu  kvirc-config         makemenu            postproc  tovid-interactive
bsetbg  doom3-dedicated  ffserver  idvid                  kvi_run_netscape.sh  makeslides          tovid
linux:/usr/local/bin # ./tovid

It looks like you don't have mjpegtools installed. I need mjpegtools
for encoding video and audio. You can get mjpegtools from:
  http://mjpeg.sourceforge.net/
linux:/usr/local/bin # rpm -q mjpegtools
mjpegtools-1.6.2-54.1

Check the tovid script. Perhaps the script has full paths hardcoded and mjpegtools is installed in a different location.
