Running that command does bring up the proper output, so considering the 
next part of the reply...

I didn't insert the set -x, but I think this might be a different 
problem with the environment of my system, one that I cannot reproduce 
in a VM. I can't seem to run shell scripts that lack the shebang at the 
start of them. I had the same problem with graphics/graphviz and 
currently use a local patch to get around that one. I'm not exactly sure 
what would cause my system to not want to run those scripts without the 
shebang. My shell on my host side is csh, but I have the same problem 
even if I am in the sh shell instead.
