After an OS reinstall, I am not able to render movies with VMD, getting an
error that VMD could not locate ppmtompeg. ppmtompeg is not in
/opt/local/bin where I expected it. So I tried to reinstall fink and
netpbm as described in
But I get the error

bash-3.2$ fink install netpbm
Information about 8659 packages read in 0 seconds.
Failed: no package found for specification 'netpbm'!

I am using VMD 1.9.1 on OS X 10.8.5. Fink itself seems to be working
because the self update didn't return any errors:

/usr/bin/rsync -az -q rsync:// /sw/fink/TIMESTAMP.tmp
I will now run the rsync command to retrieve the latest package
/usr/bin/rsync -rtz --delete-after --delete -q --include='10.7/'
--include='10.7/stable/' --include='10.7/stable/main/'
--include='10.7/stable/main/finkinfo/**/*' --include='VERSION'
--include='DISTRIBUTION' --include='README' --exclude='**' 'rsync://' '/sw/fink/'
Scanning package description files..........

No packages to install.

The core packages have been updated. You should now update the other
packages using
commands like 'fink update-all'.

Does anyone know what I might have done wrong, or if there is a better way
to get VMD set up to render movies on OS X? Thank you!
