Please check to make sure nemesis was installed correctly. You should 
have "nemesis" and "mpinemesis" in $PREFIX/bin.

In section 3.3.2 of the manual, please note that you will also need to install 
proj (before spatialdata), spatialdata, nemesis, numpy (before FIAT), and 
FIAT. Your linux distribution probably has binary packages for proj and 

FIAT is available from http://www.fenics.org/wiki/Download.

The nemesis tarball is posted on the PyLith download page: 

Spatialdata is also CIG software, but the tarball is not posted on the web 
page. To checkout the source, run
svn co http://geodynamics.org/svn/cig/cs/spatialdata-0.1/trunk spatialdata
You will need to run "autoreconf -if" and "configure" like you do for the main 
PyLith source.
