I consider myself pretty fluent in LaTex, but I'm really a novice at UNIX.  I am using MacTeX-2010 and am interested in playing around with asymptote.  I think I've read on this list that MacTeX-2010 "comes with" asymptote.  Anyway, I copied the following and ran it with pdflatex:

size (3cm);
draw (unitcircle);
\caption{Embedded Asymptote figures are easy!}

I got the caption, but not the circle.

I would be grateful for any assistance.

I will also paste the log file here.
