as if you are in the install directory.  Execute the command
     ls mhonarc
to see if mhonarc is in this directory.  If it is replace your command
      mhonarc -outdir ...
      ./mhonarc -outdir ...

or set your path with the command

It's not enough to know the world is absurd and restrict yourself merely to
pointing out that fact.... It is wrong to expect a reward for your struggles.
The reward is the act of struggle itself, not what you win.  Even though you
can't expect to defeat the absurdity of the world, you must make the attempt.
That's morality, that's religion, that's art, that's life.
