It appears that /usr/local/bin isn't on your PATH.

What packages have you installed? I think that the ghostscript package, and
maybe others, will add /usr/local/bin/ to your PATH in /etc/profile if it
isn't already there. Maybe the rtf2latex2e package doesn't check for that
being there and add it if it isn't there.

Good Luck,
