tex: Command not found -- Where do I get this??

I'm trying to compile and install IMWheel. I get the following error during Make.. I just installed the TeTex 2 package from my Slackware 9.1 CD and it still doesn't help... Do I need to do something else??


tex gpm.texinfo
make[3]: tex: Command not found
make[3]: *** [gpm.dvi] Error 127
rm gpm.texinfo
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/imwheel-1.0.0pre5/gpm-1.19.3/doc'
make[2]: *** [do-all] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/imwheel-1.0.0pre5/gpm-1.19.3'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/imwheel-1.0.0pre5'
make: *** [all] Error 2

The original tex distribution is called "Web2C" by Donald Knuth. Try that.
