Is HEAVY_GEAR_2_HOME set? Why do I get this on Slackware but not Redhat...

I have Loki's Heavy Gear II game. I installed and ran it fine on Redhat 9, but when I installed it on Slackware 10, strange things ensued....

Anyways, I installed it using the same options I had used for Redhat 9....however, when I tried to run it from the terminal (To see if an exception or anything was thrown), I got this:

root@slackware:/usr/local/games/hg2# hg2
dirname: too few arguments
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
Couldn't run Heavy Gear 2 (hg2stub). Is HEAVY_GEAR_2_HOME set?
I googled this error with one result.....but no answers. I installed the game as root, if that means anything.

Anyways, why does this game work on Redhat 9 but not Slackware 10?

Managed to get hold of a copy of Loki's Heavy Gear II and installed it SuSE 9.0 last night - same problem. I'll have a go at sorting this out tonight.

Ok. I can set HEAVY_GEAR_2_HOME to something sensible, only to hit:

WARNING: dlopen() failed: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
WARNING: couldn't run shell
