Thats not quite correct.  IDLWAVE is installed in one directory and
Emacs (not IDLWAVE) is looking on a different path.  Two fixes:

1. Add the directory to the Emacs search path


2. Make IDLWAVE install in the other directory by editing the
   makefile.  This is all explained in the INSTALL file in the IDLWAVE
