I was imprecise.  You have to put the contents of the bin directory into 
one of the predefined search directories, not the directory itself. 
Adding the bin directory to PATH should work, though.  You can check 
whether PATH was properly set by running "import os; os.environ['PATH']" 
at the Python prompt.
