  Using the GNU stow program, here's how I have it setup on my system:
(the ./ is really /usr/local/stow/realplayer)


  .. and here is the contents of bin/ra:


LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/raplayer" /usr/local/lib/raplayer/rvplayer $*

  In netscape, I set it up to use '/usr/local/bin/ra %s' as the program to
run for .rm, .ra, and .ram files.  

  It works for me [tm], but I'm sure there are other/better ways to do it.
