[GRASS-user] Cannot save map display as anything but ppm image

When I try to save my map display as any kind of image (tiff, bmp,  
jpeg), it displays an error "couldn't execute gdal_translate: no such  
file or directory" and saves it as a ppm image.  I do have  
gdal_translate, it is located in /usr/local/grasslib/bin/.

1.  Is this not the usual place for gdal_translate?
2.  If it is, why can Grass not find it?  Is there some sort of  
environment variable that needs to be set?
