You can't practically install FWTools into standard locations like
/usr/bin or /usr/local/bin, so basically you need to alter the standard
user PATH to include the FWTools/bin_safe directory.  One possible way of
doing this is to add it in /etc/bash.bashrc though I suspect there are
more proper ways.
