[gmx-users] dssp install problems

I've looked at the site and cannot figure this out, so apologies if  
this is a painful often seen question.

I'm trying to install dssp for use with do_dssp on an OSX.5 PPC system  
with the following steps, in the dssp folder:



sudo mv dssp /usr/local

cd /usr/local/bin

sudo ln -s /usr/local/dssp/dsspcmbi

Having done that I can type dsspcmbi in a terminal and run the dssp  
program. However, running do_dssp returns

Program do_dssp, VERSION 4.0.4
Source code file: do_dssp.c, line: 422

Fatal error:
DSSP executable (/usr/local/bin/dssp) does not exist (use setenv DSSP)

My problem is compiling the dssp source does not return a 'dssp' file,  
rather the 'dsspcmbi' executable, as advertised. I feel I'm missing a  
minor last step and would appreciate any help.
