[Ifeffit] Getting started in OS X...

Forgive what is essentially a naive Mac question (I think), but
perhaps it would be of service to others hoping to get IFEFFIT and
the companion packages up and running on OS X:
As background, the small amount of UNIX experience I have is coated
with a 15-year layer of rust. I would very much like to start using
Matt's and Bruce's new packages on my Mac, but am finding the
installation process a bit daunting. I'm therefore starting simple,
with what I suspect is a simple problem.
I downloaded the IFEFFIT binary installer for OS X from the IFEFFIT
home page, installed it, changed the .tchsrc file in my home
directory as indicated in the installation directions, and restarted.
I then opened the terminal program that comes with OS X, typed
IFEFFIT and got:
ifeffit: Command not found.
I can see the program sitting in the right directory, and even if I
sit in that directory and type the command I get the same response. I
am using system 10.2.6.
What am I missing or not doing?
And if that works, then I'll start in on Artemis and Athena...
