Powerbook G4 running 10.5.8

Plotting generates no output.  This used to work and I don't know what  
I've changed or how to fix it.  No errors are showing up in console.   
Just nothing happens.

$ aquaterm
-bash: aquaterm: command not found

$ port installed aquaterm
The following ports are currently installed:
   aquaterm @1.0.1_5 (active)

So macports think's aquaterm is installed, but the command line can't  
find it.  My .profile contains the following (and other things like  
gnucash start fine from the command line).

# for MacPorts
export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
export MANPATH=/opt/local/share/man:$MANPATH

  $echo $PATH

$ port installed gnuplot
The following ports are currently installed:
   gnuplot @4.2.5_1+darwin+no_x11 (active)
