[ADMB Users] when translating tpl2cpp: command not found

Hi Kevin,
I'm not very familiar with ADMB on the Mac. With my installation, the
tpl2cpp command doesn't work, but the admb command does (including
successfully calling tpl2cpp). Presumably a Mac user could help us

For the record, here's how I got ADMB-Mode to work on a Mac just now, with
a different installation process and I think a different version of Emacs.
This is my memory of my process (where steps 1-2 took place a while ago and
may not be remembered correctly)
1. install ADMB following instructions here:

2. install Aquamacs from  http://aquamacs.org/download.shtml
3. download core-aqua.zip (.emacs-aqua) from
http://www.admb-project.org/tools/admb-ide and copy the file inside to
4. download the admb-ide-101-win32.zip and copy the emacs folder to ~/emacs
5. open ~/admb/simple/simple.tpl within Aquamacs and the "build" option in
the ADMB menu worked fine, but "translate" did not.
