  Sounds as if the postinstall script didn't run and so a necessary softlink
didn't get created.  Take a look in /etc/postinstall and see if there are any
.sh files that don't have .done on the end.  If so, you can either run them
manually or just re-run setup, leaving all the default selections alone
(effectively doing a 'keep') and it'll make sure everything that should be
installed is.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
